Dyslexia is the most common type of learning disability; statistics show that as much as 20% of our nation's children may be dyslexic. Consequently, it's crucial that school personnel, especially school psychologists, neuropsychologists, educational diagnosticians, special education teachers, and even general education teachers know how to recognize, assess, and provide effective treatment programs for it.
Packaged in the user-friendly and accessible Essentials format, this book will be the first of its kind to combine the research, assessment, and treatment interventions of dyslexia in one concise volume. The authors will address the components that need to be considered in the assessment of dyslexia, both cognitive and academic, and will include descriptions of the various tests that might be utilized in a comprehensive dyslexia assessment. Furthermore, the authors will detail specific, evidence-based interventions that professionals can employ in their treatment of these children.
