This book provides an overview of the etiology and pathophysiology of specific learning difficulties, and details of the diagnostic criteria for each condition.

Treatments are described, which often involve psychotherapy or cognitive behavioral therapy, or in some conditions drug therapy. Busy primary care and family physicians will find this book invaluable as a source of up to the minute information on these conditions in a concise, eminently readable format.
