Summary Working Together: Linking skills and curriculum for adolescents with a Language Learning Disability is a must-read book for busy classroom teachers who sometimes see the needs of students with language and learning difficulties as just too hard to cater for. A working collaboration between secondary teacher, Chris Millgate-Smith, and speech pathologist, Mandy Brent, this book clearly illustrates how mainstream curriculum can be differentiated for the benefit of all students with a language learning disability (LLD)
