Review by:
Barbara Wolf-Dorlester, Ph.D.

For the psychoanalyst who wishes to become familiar with the area of learning disorders, this book provides a good introduction. The book correctly assumes that many analysts do not understand the neuropsychological underpinnings of learning disorders, but look for psychodynamic causes of learning failures. It attempts to fill this gap, and it is mostly successful in doing so. The book's basic premise is that a person's learning difficulties are most productively regarded as arising out of a multiplicity of causes—neuropsychological, psychodynamic, or a combination of the two.
