ABSTRACT

Bertrand Russell defined mathematics as 'the subject in which we never know what we are talking about, nor whether what we are talking about is true'. Without being impolite to co-authors, or wishing to suggest that the present author has an answer to the problem, the reader of this volume may well agree with Kavale and Forness (1985) that Russell's comments are even more applicable and appropriate to the field of learning disabilities (LD).
