The success of this text, which focuses on identifying and helping students with learning disabilities, is based on three key elements. First, Learning Disabilities provides an overview of this complex subject by covering procedures for assessing and evaluating students, skills in the art of clinical teaching, teaching methods and strategies, and requirements of special education laws. Second, this text offers balanced coverage of both theories and teaching strategies with cases. Third, Learning Disabilities contains research and information that reflect the rapid changes and advances in this field. All of the text's material on ADD/ADHD is combined into one chapter on "Attention Deficit Disorder," which addresses the needs of the increasing number of students diagnosed with this disorder. The findings of the 2000 National Reading Panel are incorporated into the text. These findings describe new evidence about the need for explicit and structured instruction for teaching decoding skills and phonics to students with learning disabilities.
