Specific Learning Disabilities

Show Summary Details

Preview

This online resource is a concise but comprehensive review of Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD), with a special attention to the biology of these diverse conditions. It provides a review of most aspects of SLD, including the different clinical syndromes (mostly dyslexia and dyscalculia), the clinical manifestations and the therapeutic approaches, and attempts to assemble and present the biological knowledge which has been accumulated on these conditions, including the neurological anatomy of dyslexia and dyscalculia, as well as advances in modern neuro-imaging studies, and the physiology and the genetics of these conditions. It covers the importance of phonological processing in reading, the presence of the "number center” in the brain, and the brain networks involved in reading. It also discusses the relatively unrecognized emotional aspects of SLD, and the sometime devastating effects that these conditions have on the life of affected subjects and their families, in and out of the classroom.
