This concise and practical guide thoroughly presents the characteristics of children with specific mild exceptionalities in today's diverse classroom. Using an active, problem-solving approach that reflects how today's students learn, Dr. Sydney S. Zentall identifies the characteristics of children with mild exceptionalities that can be gleaned from observations, written descriptions, and personal interactions. Unlike many texts on this topic, which overwhelm students with extraneous information, The text focuses on the characteristics of these students within general education and special class settings. With this knowledge readers will better understand the implications of characteristics for accommodations and be ready to apply this knowledge with empirically based interventions.

Math disabilities and nonverbal communication disabilities

To understand children with nonverbal or visual communication deficits, it is important to watch them (a) when they estimate money, time, objects, and space (e.g., how much/many, how far, how often, what age); (b) when they attempt to follow patterns of movements (e.g., how to make a bed, understand and play games, understand dangerous situations) or to control motor sequences (e.g., tearing tape); and (c) while they interact socially with other children. Some of these children have both a math LD (MLD) and a nonverbal LD (NVLD) and some have only an MLD (also termed dyscalculia, which is similar to the word dyslexia that characterizes most children with RD).
