About the Author:

Prior to retirement, her passion had been writing intervention research with students with and without learning disabilities. In retirement, her love for writing has transformed from academic writing to short stories about interesting events in her life.

Review:

Review of the first edition:

"The breadth of pertinent information packed into the 237 pages of text of this book is most impressive. The wide scope of essential material is presented succinctly and in a very readable and engaging style. The author did a tremendous job of selecting from current and relevant literature across different areas and summarizing the material into a very cohesive whole... The book is an excellent potential text for any undergraduate or beginning graduate class on learning disabilities. This book would also be valuable for special educators, regular classroom teachers, school psychologists, speech pathologists, and other education and health care professionals...It is rare to see a book that covers both the research and the practical applications components of a field so well." --Contemporary Psychology
