This important volume, perhaps the first of its kind in India, brings together professionals from diverse fields who share their experiences of tackling the problem of Learning Disabilities (LD) in India. Highlighting the nuances and specificities of learning disabilities and disorders in the Indian context, the contributors cover a wide range of important issues, including:

- the neurological, psychiatric and neuropsychological aspects of LD

- problems of language and reading acquisition in the bilingual and multilingual situation prevailing in India

- issues of identification and assessment

- speech and hearing issues, especially central auditory processing disorders and language deficits

The contributors also discuss the changing nature of the needs of children with LD, suggest remedies like primary prevention, stress the importance of integrating affected children in mainstream schools and argue for the need to create awareness about learning disorders.
