Editorial Reviews

From 19 years of classroom experience working with youth with learning disabilities, Bender provides a practical guide with discussion questions and activities for preservice and novice teachers in this challenging field. He covers all the pedagogical bases: from the controversial issues of the changing definition of LD, theories, and medical aspects, to assessment, placement, and instructional approaches. Of particular note are: consideration of adults with LD, objectives for Individualized Educational Plans, a glossary, and invitation for reader feedback.
