Coles, Gerald S.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v22 n5 p267-73 May 1989
Key concepts of the book include the lack of evidence supporting the neurological explanation for "learning disabilities," basic flaws in research based on this theory, and an alternative "interactivity" theory which posits that systemic economic, social, and cultural conditions are the principal influences contributing to learning failure.
