Understanding Learning Difficulties: A Practical Guide (Revised, 2018)



The handbook is designed to provide principals, teachers and school psychologists with a greater awareness and understanding of the significant impact learning disabilities can have on students, and to outline the most effective remediation and accommodation strategies available to them as classroom teachers.

This edition has been revised to be consistent with new research findings and current practice, but includes much of the highly-valued information from the first edition.

The CD contains a copy of the Guide plus a wide range of effective resources and strategies, all of which can be saved and printed for use throughout the school.

This book is something ALL schools, teachers, SSOs and parents will find useful.
