'Educational Psychologists would benefit from the information that this book provides. Not only in relation to awareness and knowledge of a variety of models of learning through the application of thinking skills (...), but also in terms of the assessment of student experiencing learning difficulties, at whatever level of severity, and the strategies which they can give to teachers as part of their advice to help individual students.'
- Debate

'‘Dorothy Howie [has compiled] a theoretically grounded as well as practically relevant book, guiding the reader to implement cognitive education programmes in combination with a practice of inclusive education. There is definitely a need for resources for teachers and teacher trainers to know how to work with a variety of different learners with specific learning needs. This book is a welcomed new source.’'
