Summary

A thorough, up-to-date resource on the full spectrum of childhood learning disorders In this Second Edition of Disorders of Learning in Childhood, Drs. Archie Silver and Rosa Hagin present a comprehensive synthesis of information regarding the classification and causes of various types of learning difficulties, as well as multidisciplinary strategies for working with children and their families in school or clinical settings. Bridging the communication gap between professionals in the field, this book advocates the coordinated efforts of administrators, scientists, teachers, and practitioners to better help young people with learning disabilities. Drawing on their vast training and experience, the authors utilize valuable data from various disciplines-education, psychology, psychiatry, neurology-and offer a balanced perspective, supported by the latest clinical research on disorders in children. They address and analyze critical issues ranging from the effects of political, social, and legal forces currently influencing educational policy to the latest advances in neuroscience affecting the understanding and management of children with learning problems. Also provided are expanded coverage of reading, spelling, writing, and mathematical disabilities; current definitions of specific disorders; and the effects of poverty, drugs, and cultural differences on learning. An extremely comprehensive resource ideal for clinicians, teachers, and administrators, Disorders of Learning in Childhood brings an expertise to the subject that no other reference can match.
