This book presents a human development model for understanding and treating age-related deficits that seem to be characteristic of individuals with learning disabilities. It is the culmination of years of clinical experience, qualitative research, and scholarship in the search for a framework that would be useful for the treatment of learning disabilities. The ultimate purpose of this book is to present a strategy for designing day-to-day, individualized lessons for learning disabled students from kindergarten through adulthood.

In spite of their average or even above-average intelligence and conventional classroom experience, a large number of children suffer from learning disabilities. Failing to cope with the academic demands of the school, many of them drop out at an early age. This deprives them of many opportunities in life that a literate person enjoys. In this context, this book serves two major objectives: it provides up-to-date information to the readers on theories and current practices in remediation of learning disability, and demonstrates the therapeutic effectiveness of two major techniques of intervention, namely, cognitive behaviour therapy and computer-assisted instruction, through a series of case studies. Thus, it bridges the theory–practice gap originating out of the difference between fundamental research and its actual implementation and places the treatment programmes on a firmer scientific footing by validating them empirically.

Most health and social care service providers claim to OCyvalueOCO those with a learning disability. Yet there can sometimes be a huge gulf between stated intentions and what happens in everyday practice. In a few cases that have recently hit the headlines, there have even been allegations of systematic abuse. This timely book asks three vital questions: OCo What do we mean by valuing?OCo How does the process of valuing work?OCo What needs to happen to ensure that we value people with a learning disability?Too often, practitioners tend to say OCyitOCOs all right in theory but not in the real worldOCO. In thisbook, Dr Steve Mee draws on his experience as a practitioner and lecturer on a learning disability nursing course, in which he has successfully used stories to bridge the gap between academic theory and everyday practice. Each chapter introduces the reader to a particular area of theory and illustrates it with uniquely powerful, memorable stories from practice as well as examples from recent news and historic accounts. Reading the book will give practitioners new insight, empathy and sensitivity that will make a lasting difference to their practice. It invites practitioners to truly reflect on whether they can claim to value the people they support.REVIEWEROCOS COMMENT: OC I feel this is a very important piece of work in an area that is often misunderstood. From reading the authors work, I have questioned my own approach to OCyValuing PeopleOCO and found myself lacking in some areas, even though I was of the opinion that I did truly value people with a learning difficulty.OCO"

Although a number of books have appeared on learning disabili ties, we feel that the present book has two distinct features which are not found in most others. It is multidisciplinary and it com bines theory with practice. A group of researchers from the disciplines of Psychology in cluding medical psychology and information processing, Reading, Special Education and Physical Education interacted with each other before and after their presentations in a conference (November 1980, at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada), and then wrote their chapters for this book. We hope that their chapters were enriched by the discussions and arguments which happened in formal and informal settings during the authors' stay in Edmonton. Dr. Leong could not attend the conference, but was asked to write the introductory chapter for the book. The contributors to this volume have been involved with basic research as well as with clinical and educational research in learning disabilities. Some of them have a theoretical rather than a practical interest. However, a serious interest in a handicapping condition perhaps compels one to consider its amelioration no matter how 'pure' is the researcher. It is because of such a feeling.that those who do basic research have sug gested procedures for applying their findings. The result is a balanced product, entailing theory and practice.
