Rethinking Learning Disabilities : Understanding Children Who Struggle in School, Paperback / softback Book

Rethinking Learning Disabilities : Understanding Children Who Struggle in School Paperback / softback

Description

Experts have yet to reach consensus about what a learning disability is, how to determine if a child has one, and what to do about it.

Leading researcher and clinician Deborah Waber offers an alternative to the prevailing view of learning disability as a problem contained within the child.

Instead, she shows how learning difficulties are best understood as a function of the developmental interaction between the child and the world.

Integrating findings from education, developmental psychology, and cognitive neuroscience, she offers a novel approach with direct practical implications.

Detailed real-world case studies illustrate how this approach can promote positive outcomes for children who struggle in school.
