      A study was conducted of adults with learning disability for the purposes of (1) contrasting a rule-based with an empirical method of classification into subtypes based on academic achievement levels in reading and arithmetic; and (2) examining cognitive profiles obtained with the Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery and the Wechsler Adult .

    Recently, this stimulation technique has been adopted by a number of learning-disability centers for treating of dyslexic children and underachievers in reading. Before describing these procedures and their relative effectiveness in treating reading-disabled children, we briefly present the rationale for their application. Aimed at improving both our understanding of dysfunction and clinical intervention, this accessible volume on learning disabilities among children and adolescents explores: research and professional practice; subtypes of learning disability; and dimensions of .

    Abstract. This is an exciting time for research in the field of learning disabilities. A diverse group of investigators is tackling the very thorny issues of learning difficulties from a variety of vantage points including biological (e.g., Duane & Gray, ), psychological (e.g., Torgesen, ), and ecological (e.g., Speece, ) perspectives.
