A great deal has been discovered about learning disabilities in the past decade, but much of this information has been slow to reach the general public. Finally, Learning Disabilities: A to Z brings the best of recent research and educational experience to parents, teachers, and care givers who are responsible for children with information-processing problems. Writing with warmth and compassion, Corinne Smith and Lisa Strick provide a comprehensive guide to the causes, identification, and treatment of learning disabilities. You will learn how these subtle neurological disorders can have a major impact on a child's development, both in and out of school. Learning Disabilities: A to Z also supplies a wealth of practical and innovative strategies for helping youngsters with learning disabilities become successful, from their earliest days in preschool, through the college years and beyond.
