The success of this text is based on three key elements. First and foremost, Learning Disabilities uses a varied approach to provide a comprehensive overview of this complex subject. The text covers theoretical approaches within the field, procedures for assessing and evaluating students, skills in the art of clinical teaching, and teaching methods and strategies. Secondly, the text offers a balance between information on theory and teaching strategies with cases. Lastly, Learning Disabilities reflects Lerner's commitment to keeping her readership fully informed of the rapid changes and advances in this field. The result is comprehensive, as Learning Disabilities offers valuable strategies for teaching students to a wide range of professionals: classroom teachers, special education teachers, school psychologists, administrators, language pathologists, counsellors, and related professionals.

"I particularly 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." -- Review
