This volume honors the founder of the International Academy for Research in Learning Disabilities (IARLD), William M. Cruickshank,
and his many accomplishments. His influence on special education in general, and learning disabilities in specific, is evident
throughout the world. Consistent with his international activities, the contributors to this book represent nine different
countries. The chapters reflect a range of perspectives on "the state of the art" in learning disabilities, documenting both
commonalities and differences across countries. Taken together, the chapters provide a comprehensive and informative picture
of learning disabilities.
