Perspectives on Learning Disabilities: Biological, Cognitive, Contextual

Synopsis

Although the term learning disabled (LD) is widely used, few agree on its definition or origins. This edited volume attempts to bridge that knowledge gap by bringing together experts from a variety of perspectives-biological, cognitive, educational, sociological, & interactive-to discuss the nature of LD, its origins, its diagnosis, & effective remediation. Framing the discussion are introductory & concluding chapters written by the editors.
