Andrea Rosenblatt
“This book is filled with classroom implications and instructional suggestions based on research. Classroom teachers, school administrators, professional development trainers, college/university faculty, and parents will all benefit from this information.”

“I have used the information from this book in many of my training sessions. The ‘What This Means to You’ sections translate technical information into everyday language for the reader. This is truly a book that has made—and will continue to make—a contribution to the field.”
