Researchers and educators are well aware of the pressing need for guidelines in measuring learning disabilities and of the difficulty in finding a resource that offers in-depth analysis of assessment issues. Frames of Reference for the Assessment of Learning Disabilities provides a comprehensive discussion of up-to-date research and progressive measurement strategies. Unique because of its broad scope, this essential reference examines assessment tools as they relate to a wide range of learning disabilities, including disabilities that affect attention, executive function, linguistics and reading, mathematics, written language expression, spelling, social competence, and cognitive abilities.
