Quickly acquire the knowledge and skills you need to accurately identify specific learning disabilities
Essentials of Specific Learning Disability Identification provides a brief overview examining the definitions and classification systems of—and methods for—identification of specific learning disabilities (SLDs). Focusing on descriptive efforts of the manifestations of SLDs in the academically critical areas of reading, writing, math, oral expression, and listening comprehension, this book features contributions by leading experts in the field, including Virginia Berninger, Steven Feifer, Jack Fletcher, Nancy Mather, Jack Naglieri, and more.
Like all the volumes in the Essentials of Psychological Assessment series, each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material, as well as test questions that help you gauge and reinforce your grasp of the information covered.
With multiple perspectives spanning several different theoretical orientations and offering various approaches to SLD identification that can be put into practice right away—from RTI methods to cognitive strengths and weaknesses approaches—this book offers important content for professionals who work with children and youth at risk for learning disabilities. With a Foreword by Cecil Reynolds, Essentials of Specific Learning Disability Identification presents rich and up-to-date information on models and methods of SLD identification.
