Summary

Learners with Mild Disabilities discusses students with disabilities with respect to their individual strengths and needs, considering their cognitive, perceptual, language, academic learning, and social/emotional characteristics.

This text focuses on four high-prevalence disabilities: mild mental retardation, learning disabilities, ADHD, and behavioral disorders. It begins with a discussion of the traditional categorical perspective, and then moves to the perspective of alternative, non-categorical frameworks. The reader is encouraged to apply these conceptual frameworks through analysis of the many vignettes and extended case studies in the text -- stories that are drawn from the experiences of real children and teachers. This book emphasizes the complex nature of mild disabilities and provides an alternative to the notion that these are discrete disabilities.
