Learning Disability PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Learning Disability free pdf In spite of their average or even above-average intelligence, a large number of children suffer from learning disabilities. Failing to cope with the academic demands, many of them drop out from schools and are therefore deprived of opportunities in life later. Although, there exists a growing body of research explaining this etiology, the gap between theory and practice is perceptible. Subsequently, the challenge is to place the treatment programmes on firmer scientific footing by validating them empirically, demanding rigorous response-guided research. This book is designed to serve two major objectives: first, to provide up-to-date information on theories and current practices in remediation of learning disability and second, to demonstrate the therapeutic effectiveness of two major techniques of intervention, that is, cognitive-behaviour therapy and computer-assisted instruction , through a series of case studies. Learning Disability serves as a resource book for many who are working with people with learning disabilities by covering topics relevant to contemporary practices in the field of learning disabilities. The book, thus, attempts to combine and integrate both: theory with practice.
