Teachers and parents who are responsible for the needs of learning disabled adolescents will find this book designed specifically for their use.
The first four chapters introduce and discuss the theoretical background of both adolescence and learning disabilities. They are followed by five detailed chapters, each a case history of one learning disabled young man, that provide us with as full and unique a picture of the youths as is possible.
The final chapters explore teaching the learning disabled adolescent in the secondary school. The authors have devised a core educational regimen which will prepare children for life and will insure the integrity of the youth’s individual personality.
Practical procedures-a teaching method-establish learning and test the performance of secondary school students in particular. Cruickshank, Morse, and Johns concentrate on reading, organization, study skills, and written language.
