Practitioners seeking the most current advances in the field of ADHD and LD must often bridge the gap between research and practice. The Therapist's Guide to Learning and Attention Disorders provides that bridge through the authors, who are both researchers and practitioners with extensive experience in providing direct services to children and adults with ADHD and LD. Practitioners are often faced with the choice of reading research or consulting text that suggest strategies or techniques for serving children and adults with ADHD that are not base on research. This book provides practitioners a translation of research to practice in one source.This book provides practical forms, illustrations, and rating scales that can be readily incorporated into practice. The last chapter takes a fascinating look into the role of various practitioners twenty years into the future.

"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!
