Book Title: Handbook of Learning Disabilities

Author: L. Swanson, K. R. Harris, & S. Graham (Eds.)

Book Description:

Respect for divergent thinking is paramount to one’s success as a researcher and teacher in the ever-changing field of learning disabilities. Knowledge regarding best instructional practice, assessment, and the methodologies used to test research questions is critical. This knowledge needs to be well-grounded in the theoretical frameworks established by pioneers and those currently prominent in the field. Handbook of Learning Disabilities is an exemplar of well-grounded research and its implications for practice. This special book has been a valuable resource for me throughout my career. I am honored to recognize this book as it was edited by two mentors, colleagues, and friends to whom I owe a great deal of gratitude: my advisor Karen Harris, and Steve Graham.
