Learning Difficulties: Optimism or Pessimism

pp. 5—15

During the last years, my globe-trotting activities have helped me become acquainted with the methods of diagnosis and treatment of learning difficulties used in many countries. I therefore have an opportunity to make comparisons and observe differences and common trends. One of the trends I have observed worries me, a certain pessimism that can be noted in this and in other countries, a certain disenchantment with regard to treatment prospects for children with learning difficulties. I am also worried because there is such a great diversity of opinion on how to prevent and treat learning difficulties, and even whether they should be treated at all.
