The chapters in this book provide a window into the research on effective interventions to help students with learning disabilities (LD) learn to succeed academically. The interventions described in this book are deeply informed by multi-disciplinary research. It is a knowledge base that derives from research and thinking in a wide range of contributing disciplines: education, language, applied linguistics, psychology, psycholinguistics, cognitive science, and second language acquisition, to name but a few. Many of these subject areas were in their infancy in the middle decades of the twentieth century but are now rigorous in research and intellectual activity, and are able to provide insights of relevance to LD intervention practice. We sought submissions that blended the theory and practice of intervention in LD and were complex in their perspective.
