"Author Eileen Raymond describes students with disabilities with respect to their individual strengths and needs, considering their cognitive, perceptual, and social-emotional characteristics. The reader is encouraged to apply these conceptual frameworks through analysis of numerous vignettes and extended case studies throughout the text. Learners with Mild Disabilities is designed as a primary text for use in undergraduate and graduate courses that address the characteristics of learners with high-prevalence or milder levels of disability, and it is useful as a text for the first specialized course in a special education program."--Jacket.
"I find this text to be an excellent source of information. It is well planned and provides a clear layout of the characteristics approach to individuals with different learning styles and needs."
