This volume is intended for researchers and graduate students of psychology, education, and special education. Because social, cultural, and economic conditions are varied from country to country, there is a need to explore how learning disabilities are identified, perceived, and addressed around the world. Up-to-date research from North and South America, Europe, and the United Kingdom is included to provide a global overview of a wide variety of learning and behavioral disorders. Internationally prominent authors discuss their research pertaining to the following areas: working memory, reading disabilities, ADHD, hearing impairments, motivational orientations, measurement of socio-cultural level, ecological perspectives on social behavior, and students with disabilities in international schools. International contributions ensure global coverage of subject matter. It includes unprecedented coverage of learning and behavioral disabilities in one volume.
