Abstract

The article contains a review of the two-volume “Special psychology” textbook, under the executive editorship of V.I. Lubovsky, the outstanding psychologist, Academician of the Russian Academy of Education [1; 2], who celebrates his centenary in 2023. In this book, special psychology appears for the first time in the world educational literature as a holistic and systematically presented scientific field. The book includes previously unpublished materials. The textbook is for university students, but it may be of interest to postgraduate students, researchers, practicing psychologists, teachers, and other professionals working with children and adults with various developmental disabilities. The textbook, in addition to considering general problems of special psychology and the patterns of mental development in dysontogenesis, analyzes in detail the specific features of different variants of impaired development, including children with disorders of the emotionally volitional sphere and behavior, as well as applied problems of special psychology and prospects for this scientific branch.
