Learning Disabilities. What Research Says to the Teacher.
Johnson, Donald H.; Johnson, Leah J.
The booklet discusses research on characteristics and remediation approaches for children with learning disabilities (LD). Initial sections consider definitions, prevalence and causes of LD, while a fourth chapter reviews such LD characteristics as attention disorders, visual-perceptual difficulties, and memory disorders. Also considered are academic skill deficits in reading, expressive language, and arithmetic. Medicine-related treatments (including sensory integrative therapy and diet) are described along with such education-related treatments as perceptual motor training, applied behavior analysis, and diagnostic-prescriptive teaching.
