A Literary Perspective on Learning Disabilities.
Hildreth, Bertina L.
This critical review examines 18 books available to the general public about learning disabilities (LD) and offers guidelines for use of these books by professionals. Books are grouped into three categories: those written from the perspective of parents and individuals with learning disabilities, those written from an LD professional's perspective, and juvenile literature. The use of juvenile literature with mainstream teachers, nondisabled students, and students with learning disabilities is recommended. Techniques useful with such groups are discussed including M. E. Crosby's five-step procedure for discussing books and bibliography. Questions for mainstream teachers in book discussions are suggested. (DB)
