Australian Council Educational Research (ACER)
Learning Difficulties draws on international research about learning difficulties to present a clear picture of the issues involved. It focuses on early identification, so that intervention can prevent or minimise the negative outcomes of persistent failure and explains how teachers can address problems effectively. Problems of socialisation and behaviour are discussed and brief coverage given to students' specific difficulties with reading and mathematics. A comprehensive range of links to additional sources of information will help teachers find positive solutions for their students.
