There are many approaches to researching the difficulties in learning that students experience in the key areas of literacy and numeracy. This book seeks to advance understanding of these difficulties and the interventions that have been used to improve outcomes. The book addresses the sometimes complementary and sometimes contradictory results, and generates new approaches to understanding and serving students with difficulties in literacy and numeracy. The book represents a departure from conventional wisdom as most scholars and graduate students draw upon ideas from only one of the three domains focal in the book and usually from one single or dominant theoretical frame. Typically, readers will affiliate with reading education, mathematics education, or learning disabilities and belong to one of the corresponding professional associations such as IRA, NCTM, or CLD. This book's scope will open a scholarly forum for engaging readers with a familiarity with one of these domains while providing insight into the others on offer in the book.

From the reviews:

"This book is likely to be found soon on all recommended reading lists for graduate and postgraduate students pursuing studies in special and inclusive education. It is also relevant reading for students undertaking courses in the teaching of reading and mathematics. ... brings together under one cover the diverse theories, perspectives and studies that have hitherto been confined to discipline-specific texts and professional journals. ... the book has probably achieved its purpose in advancing our understanding of issues surrounding learning difficulties in literacy and numeracy." (Peter Westwood, Australian Journal of Learning Difficulties, Vol. 17 (1), May, 2012)
