Designed to help pre-service teachers and practicing professionals evaluate and aid students with disabilities, this comprehensive text is guided by three main principles: to aid in the assessment and evaluation of students with learning disabilities, to demonstrate Learning Disabled (LD) theory and its practical applications through the use of case studies, and to provide the most up-to-date information on recent developments and topics of debate in the field. The Tenth Edition continues to stress familiarity with state and national standards, specifically those from the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC).

"I particularily like the easy-to-read format of the text as well as the manner in which Lerner presents information within each chapter. Presenting a variety of theories and stating both the pros and cons of each theory allows the reader to make informed decisions regarding which theory or instructional strategy might be most effective for a given learner."
