Our ignorance of learning disabilities

Our ignorance of learning disabilities | Assistive Technology ATA | Scoop.it

Raising the achievement of students with learning disabilities is hard, expensive, controversial and complex. School systems must pay private school tuition for students they can’t adequately serve. Educators and parents sometimes disagree on what methods to use. Education writers like me rarely deal with the subject because it is difficult to explain and lacks many success stories.
