The learning disabilities monograph contains five brief articles dealing with various aspects of learning disabilities as they related to business education. "Learning Disabilities: A Challenge for the Vocational Business Educator" (Dorothy Munger) concerns screening students with learning disabilities into rather than out of business education classes. "The Atypical Student in Basic Business Courses" (Robert E. Schick) discusses the various factors which bear on students' learning and which teachers need to consider when locating, diagnosing, and correcting learning problems in basic business classes. "Learning and Reading Disabilities" (Walter B. Barbe and Raymond Swassing) examines the differences between learning and reading disabilities, offers suggestions for helping students with reading disabilities, and discusses the need for providing students with a feeling of success. "Math? Yech:" (Carolyn Brenner) simulates a classroom situation in which the teacher interests students of below-average computational ability in learning to compute, and offers eight suggested ways of fostering computational skills. "Understanding and Teaching the Discouraged Student with Learning and Emotional Problems" (Paul Painter, M.D.) discusses the nature of learning and emotional disorders and the origins and development of learning disabilities, and makes suggestions to classroom teachers for successfully teaching students with such problems. An annotated bibliography is appended. (JR)
