Off Track: When Poor Readers Become "Learning Disabled"

Synopsis

"There is no more definitive, and readable, account of why we have witnessed a huge increase of reading-disabled studentsand why we are mostly wrong in framing this and many other academic problems as a disability. Spear-Swerling and Sternberg masterfully demonstrate the disconnects between scientific evidence about poor reading and the views pushed by large parts of the learning disabiliyt industry. . . . A must-read for educators and a should-read for everyone interested in education".Albert Shanker, President, American Federation of Teachers.
