More About This Textbook


Learning and behavioral disabilities have been identified all over the world. However, how these disabilities are manifested, and how they are studied and understood may vary greatly from country to country, based upon differing social, or cultural, or economic considerations. In today's shrinking world, international perspectives on these issues are of increasing importance. In this volume, international research in learning and behavioral disorders is described and evaluated. Chapters in this volume provide discussions of research relevant to a number of international settings, including Norway, Italy, the United Kingdom, Argentina, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Greece, and the United States. In this volume, internationally-prominent authors discuss their research in a wide variety of domains, including working memory and early mathematics, reading disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, social abilities and communication disorders, hearing impairments, mathematical disabilities, motivational orientations, measurement of socio-cultural level, ecological perspectives on social behavior, and students with disabilities in international schools. This book is intended for interested professionals and practitioners; researchers in learning and behavioral disabilities; and graduate students in psychology, education, and special education, particularly those interested in international perspectives in the study of learning and behavioral disabilities.
