Aimed at improving both our understanding of dysfunction and clinical intervention, this accessible volume on learning disabilities among children and adolescents explores: research and professional practice; subtypes of learning disability; and dimensions of psychosocial functioning. An introduction to a comprehensive, cohesive model of neuropsychological assessment and intervention is also provided.
Detailed case studies - exemplifying major subtypes of learning disabilities - illustrate the application of general principles derived from research to the clinical imperatives of day-to-day practice.
