A Canadian perspective on learning disabilities.
Canadian practice and research with children and adults with learning disabilities are described and analyzed.
After an examination of the historical basis for current practice, the societal and cultural factors affecting education of children with learning disabilities, services for adults, and research are discussed.
It was found that policy and legislation regarding special education vary considerably from province to province, and identification practices and service delivery models vary even within provinces.
The fact that Canada has two official languages (English and French), a large multicultural community, and a Native population with special needs often arising from poverty has an impact on the education of children with learning disabilities and on sample description in research.
