"A scholarly anthology of essays by learned contributors discussing how to most effectively help students with learning disabilities and difficulties achieve in mathematics...brings together the latest research and field-tested wisdom in an effort to answer its title question and promote improved teaching methodologies. Especially recommended for education shelves." --James A. Cox"The Midwest Book Review, Education Shelf" (08/16/2007)


"Berch and Mazzocco are to be commended for bringing together such a variety of researchers in mathematical difficulties and disabilities . . . Rather than feeling discouraged about the lack of consistency in this field, I felt encouraged that the field has grown enough to have a book such as this to explore the inconsistencies." --Stephen A. Truhon"PsycCRITIQUES, American Psychological Association" (11/15/2007)


"Represents seminal work on understanding mathematical learning difficulties and disabilities." --Asha Jitendra
