About this Book

This edited collection offers screening, teaching and practical support for specific learning differences in Higher Education

  • Uses international case studies to explain how psychologists identify, assess and support a range of specific learning differences in students
  • The higher education sector has come to terms with dyslexia, but todayâ??s students are disclosing a range of learning differences including dyspraxia, ADHD, Aspergerâ??s Syndrome and dyscalculia
  • Institutions in all major Western countries are required by law to avoid disadvantaging students with special educational needs, so staff must be up to date on how to recognise and support them
  • Supported by an already popular website, Brain HE, with extra materials and colour photographs
