"It is difficult enough writing a guide for either atttention disorders or learing disabilities (LD), but to attempt a complete therapist's guide for both disorders seems particuarly daunting. In the Therapist's Guide to Learning and Attention Disorders, editors Aubrey Fine, Ed.D., and Ronald Kotkin, Ph.D., however, do a superb job and provide clinicians with a blend of evidence-based practices along with practical solutions to everyday issues... The appendices are gems... In addition, rating scales referred to in the text are provided for the clinician. Assessment tools are also discussed. Supplemental materials, resources and an index round out the reader's experience... this book will provide invaluable in enhancing your clinical skills and providing tools for dealing with your clients and their parents." -ATTENTION!
