Learning Disabilities and Life Stories
This anthology is comprised of two major components: thirteen full-length, autobiographical essays written by persons with learning disabilities and five analytical chapters written by education and psychology scholars.
Full-length autobiographical essays written by persons with learning disabilities are intricate, carefully-told portraits of the inner worlds and life experiences of persons who have grown up with learning disabilities.
Scholarly essays answer and/or make dialogue with the autobiographies and offer important, original perspectives on the best practice for educators, special educators, and psychologists.
A chapter by Lisa Delpit (author of Skin-Deep Learning) focuses on the social justice and diversity issues that emerge when persons with learning disabilities also happen to be racial minorities.
