"Overcoming Learning Disabilities - a vygotskian-lurian neuropsychological approach". A book with this title was published by Cambridge University Press. It's authors are Russian scholars, disciples of renown neuropsychologist A.R. Luriya. The book presents both general basis of correctional-developmental work and specific recommendations on overcoming different kinds of learning disabilities. The main idea of organizing help is working in the zone of proximal development of the child, taking into account the child's strong and weak elements of higher mental functions. Special attention is given in this fundamental  work to help children develop a skill of planning and controlling his/her own actions, successfully process visual-spatial information.
