Learning difficulties in the school-age population are estimated at between 7% and 10% and represent a high risk for academic success, for future social adaptation and for personality development. Law 170/2010 on Specific Learning Disorders (SLD), MIUR and the Ministry of Health underline the importance of a systematic observation of the prerequisites of reading, writing and calculation. Already in the last year of nursery school it is possible to detect predictors of subsequent difficulties and implement strengthening courses that can substantially reduce the negative impact on learning abilities of written language, not only in children with SLD but in all those with Special Educational Needs.
Born from the experience of clinicians and teachers, this volume provides indications and materials for assessing the main indicators of school skills development quickly and easily, and for developing specific intervention plans. Through online resources it also provides a tool to print observation protocols, collection grids for compiling data and automatically define individual and collective profiles, as well as the type of interventions required, simplifying the work of teachers and other professionals.
