Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Sixth Edition of Learning Disabilities: Characteristics, Identification, and Teaching Strategies presents guidelines for using Response to Intervention (RTI) as an eligibility tool and as differentiated instruction for the general education class.  Detailed coverage of the most up-to-date classroom practices, the latest research, and critical issues are also presented.

 

Using the author’s nearly thirty years of experience in working with children and adolescents who have learning disabilities, this new edition presents the latest research and information on learning disabilities in each developmental area. It focuses on identification and eligibility issues, incorporating the newly released rules and regulations on RTI, IDEA 2004, and the No Child Left Behind legislation.  The text stresses both the characteristics of students with learning disabilities and classroom-tested instructional strategies. With up-to-date content, this practical guide also offers insight into practical educational concerns from a teacher’s perspective, as well as the relevant scholarship.

 

Highlights of the Sixth Edition:

  • Emphasizes RTI as an assessment option and provides a detailed example of how to complete a response to intervention (Chapter 5).
  • Includes specifics of the IDEA 2004 laws and regulations that became effective in August, 2006.  These will drastically reform the field of LD within two years! (Chapters 1-5).
  • Contains research-based reading strategies, as emphasized in the No Child Left Behind legislation (Chapter 6).

I highly recommend this book due to the in-depth coverage of Learning Disabilities. In particular, I enjoyed the emphasis on practical best practices and strategies for educators to employ. (Too often, many books stop short of the practicality of teaching, and focus on theory). Moreover, I always enjoy books that are hardcover with good binding, such as this book. I see no reason that you will not be as equally satisfied!

I needed this book for a class. It is written in an easy to understand format. It is also a bit smaller than a standard textbook, making it easier to carry. A pretty good first chapter on the history of learning disabilities.

This book was in excellent condition. It was like new and did not have any marks or notes on the pages. I am very pleased with both the condition and the price.
