Summary
"More children than ever before are being labeled as learning disabled (LD), including some who in the past would have been labeled mentally retarded. But despite the reliance on the term, few agree on its definition or origins." "This edited volume attempts to bridge that knowledge gap by bringing together experts from a variety of perspectives -biological, cognitive, educational, sociological, and interactive - to discuss the nature of LD, its origins, its diagnosis, and effective remediation."--Jacket
