Chapter 1, on the academic environment, addresses what is necessary for a supportive academic environment; what LDs are; descriptions of LDs; and how LDs show up in academic behavior. Chapter 2, on the emotional environment, discusses what is necessary for a safe emotional climate; common psychological issues of LD students; the successful teacher of LD adolescents and adults; and strategies to create a beneficial emotional climate.
