What Teachers Need to Know About Learning Difficulties

By Peter Westwood

This book draws on international research about learning difficulties, presenting a clear picture of the issues involved. It focuses on early identification, so that intervention can prevent or minimize the negative outcomes of persistent failure and it explains how teachers can address problems effectively. Problems of socialization and behavior are discussed and brief coverage is given to students' specific difficulties with reading and mathematics. A comprehensive range of links to additional sources of information will help teachers find positive solutions for their students.
