About the Author

H. Lee Swanson, PhD, is Distinguished Professor of Educational Psychology/Special Education and holds an endowed chair at the University of California, Riverside. He is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Learning Disabilities and was the founding editor of Learning and Individual Differences. Widely published, Dr. Swanson has received research awards from the American Educational Research Association, the International Academy for Research in Learning Disabilities, and the Council for Learning Disabilities. His primary research interests are in the areas of intelligence, memory, mathematics, reading, and dynamic assessment as they apply to children with LD. Karen R. Harris, EdD, is the Mary Emily Warner Professor in the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at Arizona State University; she shares this professorship with Steve Graham. Dr. Harris has worked in the field of education for over 35 years as a teacher, teacher educator, and researcher. She is the former editor of the Journal of Educational Psychology and is an associate editor of the American Psychological Association's open-access online journal Archives of Scientific Psychology. Her research focuses on theoretically based interventions for the development of academic and self-regulation abilities among students who are at risk for or have severe learning challenges, including LD and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Dr. Harris and Steve Graham are coeditors of the Guilford series What Works for Special-Needs Learners. Steve Graham, EdD, is the Warner Professor in the Division of Educational Leadership and Innovation at Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, Arizona State University. He is also Research Professor in the Learning Science Institute at the Australian Catholic University in Brisbane. Dr. Graham is editor of the Journal of Educational Psychology. He has coedited several books, including Handbook of Writing Research, Second Edition; Handbook of Learning Disabilities, Second Edition; and Best Practices in Writing Instruction, Second Edition; and is the coauthor of three influential Carnegie Corporation reports: Writing Next, Writing to Read, and Informing Writing. Dr. Graham has received numerous awards, including the Career Research Award from the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC), the Kauffman-Hallahan Distinguished Researcher Award from the CEC Division of Research, the Samuel A. Kirk Award from the CEC Division of Learning Disabilities, the Distinguished Researcher Award from the special education interest group of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), and the Wiederholt Distinguished Lecturer Award from the Council of Learning Disabilities. He is a fellow of the AERA and the International Academy for Research in Learning Disabilities.


"An exceptionally solid and comprehensive volume from leading scholars in the field. The second edition presents major research findings characterized by increased scientific rigor and an integrative perspective, bringing together neuroscience, genetics, and behavior. Chapters consistently rely on an operational definition of learning disabilities that does not reflect discrepancy notions. This handbook should be required reading for school psychologists, graduate students, and LD researchers."--James E. Ysseldyke, PhD, Birkmaier Professor, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Minnesota

"Swanson, Harris, and Graham offer a comprehensive examination of LD that reflects the multidisciplinary nature of the field. They bring together researchers whose work addresses conceptual, neurological, instructional, and methodological trends and issues. The second edition provides up-to-date coverage of legal aspects of service delivery, as well as notable new chapters on single-case designs, the state of the science in LD, adults with LD, and more. This volume is well suited as a course text or professional reference."--Diane Pedrotty Bryant, PhD, Department of Special Education and Meadows Center for Preventing Educational Risk, University of Texas at Austin

"The chapters in this volume offer an authoritative summary and analysis of core issues related to theory and practice in the LD field. The book should be required reading for all advanced students in the field. It is an indispensable graduate text and resource for scholars."--C. Addison Stone, PhD, School of Education (Emeritus), University of Michigan

"The Handbook has been the go-to source for a reliable, scholarly, in-depth treatment of major topics in the LD field for the past decade. Much has changed during this period, however, and the second edition is timely and welcome. New topics such as RTI and computer-based approaches to instruction are introduced and older topics--such as the preeminence of phonologic processing in successful reading--are revisited. This volume is an essential addition to the reference libraries of advanced students and clinical professionals alike."--Deborah P. Waber, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Boston Children's Hospital and Harvard Medical School
