Most of the literature on learning disabilities and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) focuses on the needs of elementary school-age children, but older students with these conditions also require significant support. Comprehensive and authoritative, this book helps educators and clinicians navigate the maze of laws, policies, and scientific research relating to diagnostic and intervention decision making for adolescents and adults. Leading expert Noel Gregg provides clear guidance on how to conduct and document evidence-based assessments and select appropriate instructional and testing accommodations. Featuring helpful case vignettes, decision-making flowcharts, and coverage of the latest assistive technologies, the book gives special attention to supporting students during the crucial transition from high school to higher education or vocational settings.
Why Are Accommodations Important? Documentation for Accommodation Access. Broad and Specific Cognitive Processing. Social, Emotional, and Behavioral Assessment and Accommodation. Reading Assessment and Accommodation. Writing Assessment and Accommodation. Different Symbol Systems: Mathematics, Science, and Second Languages. Accommodations on Large-scale Assessments.
Noel Gregg, PhD, is Distinguished Research Professor in the Department of Psychology and the Department of Communication Sciences and Special Education at the University of Georgia, USA, where she is also Director of the Regents' Center for Learning Disorders. Her areas of specialization include adolescents and adults with learning disabilities and ADHD, accommodations, alternative media, assessment, written language disorders, and measurement validity. Dr. Gregg has published numerous books, book chapters, and articles, and has been an expert witness in several key legal cases pertaining to accommodating adults with learning disabilities and ADHD on high-stakes tests.
"Gregg's timely work contrasts the intensive services delivered to children with learning disabilities and ADHD to the relative dearth of efforts for these individuals as they transition into adulthood. Often unrecognized, minimized, or ignored, this 'silent epidemic' results in considerable cost to the individual and society. Thorough yet accessible, the book presents systemic assessment and intervention strategies designed to accommodate these individuals' learning and psychosocial needs." - James B. Hale, Department of Psychology, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, USA "Written by an expert in the field, this book is coherent and insightful. Gregg's coverage of up-to-date research is comprehensive, and she has an exceptional ability to identify and describe practical applications. The book meets a tremendous need." - H. Lee Swanson, Distinguished Professor of Educational Psychology and Peloy Chair, University of California, Riverside, USA "A great resource in an area that has many challenges. I particularly like the way the solid research base is translated into implications for assessment and accommodation. Loaded with valuable information, this book fills an important gap in the literature." - Martha L. Thurlow, Director, National Center on Educational Outcomes, University of Minnesota, USA "An exceptionally well-written, detailed, authoritative, and science-based review of appropriate educational accommodations for teens and adults with ADHD and/or LD, and the documentation needed to obtain them. It is the best contemporary treatment of this topic available. The book is rich with useful recommendations pertaining to multiple aspects of individual functioning, including cognitive, social, emotional, behavioral, and academic domains. Highly readable, instructive, and punctuated with informative case examples, this book should prove beneficial to clinicians, educators, and graduate students." - Russell A. Barkley, Department of Psychiatry, Medical University of South Carolina and State University of New York Upstate Medical University at Syracuse, USA
