Summary 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. It also establishes a framework for systematic measurement by identifying five decision points that enable the evaluator to focus on the learning areas that are most crucial, and most difficult, for the student to master. This groundbreaking work, compiled by recognized experts, challenges the traditional definition of learning disabilities and explores new approaches to measuring a child's progress reliably. It enables professionals to evaluate measurement tools and strategies, to develop criteria for choosing and evaluating core test batteries, and to assess the efficacy of improving existing tools versus developing new ones. Researchers, clinicians, educators, and students in special education, psychology, neurology, and pediatrics can turn to this resource for an authoritative examination of the issues surrounding the assessment of learning disabilities and for state-of-the-art measurement techniques.
