Clinicians within the fields of neuropsychology and school psychology may find this text to be a useful guide in understanding and assessing the disparate learning disorders.

Interventions will be elucidated regarding the remediation of the various subtypes of learning disorders. This book is specifically tailored to aid busy clinicians and students-in-training in accruing the clinical acumen pertinent to assessment of learning disorders. Case studies are included that will give a look into types of cases and profiles clinicians will often come across in practice.
