Learners with Mild Disabilities : A Characteristics Approach (ISBN10: 0205200648; ISBN13: 9780205200641)
ISBN13: 978-0205200641
ISBN10: 0205200648

Summary: This book focuses on four high-prevalence disabilities: mild mental retardation, learning disabilities, ADHD, and behavioral disorders. It begins with the conventional categorical perspective, and then moves to the perspective of alternative, non-categorical frameworks. Learners with Mild Disabilities focuses on disabilities with respect to any individual's strengths and needs, considering their cognitive, perceptual, language, academic learning, and social/em
otional characteristics. The reader is encouraged to apply these conceptual frameworks through analysis of the numerous vignettes and extended case studies: stories which are drawn from the experiences of real children and teachers. The approach of this book emphasizes the complex nature of mild disabilities and provides an alternative to the notion that these are discrete disabilities. For those who need to work with mild mental retardation, learning disabilities, ADHD, and behavioral disorders.
