Praet, Magda; Desoete, Annemie – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019
The purpose of the present pilot study was to evaluate the effects of particular educational math games in kindergarten on numerical skills in Grade 1. Our participants were 49 children with early math difficulties, 65 average achievers, and 48 high-achieving 5-year-old children. All of them played various adaptive math games for 5 weeks. To avoid…

Götze, Daniela – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019
In the last decades, many research projects have indicated that, especially for children with mathematical difficulties, procedural training programs seem to be very helpful in promoting learning of multiplicative routines such as the times table. However, there is less knowledge about whether and how a conceptual understanding of multiplication…

Campbell, Aaron R.; Bowman-Perrott, Lisa; Burke, Mack D.; Sallese, Mary Rose – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2018
There is a strong connection between emotional and behavioral problems and academic outcomes across multiple domains for students with or atrisk of emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD). There is a growing body of research investigating this area within the field of special education. This article summarized findings from seven systematic…

Barber, Mariah; Cartledge, Gwendolyn; Council, Morris, III; Konrad, Moira; Gardner, Ralph; Telesman, Alana O. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2018
This study examined the effects of a novel computer software program, Reading RACES (Relevant and Culturally Engaging Stories), on the oral reading fluency and comprehension of three urban first graders who were English language learners (ELLs) and showed reading/special education risk. The individually administered intervention consisted of…

Burke, Lisa; Poll, Gerard; Fiene, Judy – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2017
Seventh grade students, varying in their literacy skills, from a suburban middle school in the United States were taught an expository writing strategy using the Self-Regulated Strategy Development approach. Using an AB design, the students participated in an eight-session expository writing intervention that taught the writing process. The…

Fenty, Nicole S.; Brydon, Melissa – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2017
This study explored the impact of training special education teacher candidates to implement content literacy strategy instruction on the teacher candidates' feelings of self-efficacy, beliefs, and practice. The study also explored the impact of implementing content literacy interventions on the content knowledge of elementary age students with or…

Fenty, Nicole; Mulcahy, Candace; Washburn, Erin – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2015
A quasi-experimental pretest/posttest group design was used to determine whether computer-assisted fluency instruction is as effective as print-based, teacher-led fluency instruction in improving fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension skills in third grade students experiencing delayed fluency development. Fifty participants were randomly assigned…

Calder Stegemann, Kim; Grünke, Matthias – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2014
Number sense is critical to the development of higher order mathematic abilities. However, some children have difficulty acquiring these fundamental skills and the knowledge base of effective interventions/remediation is relatively limited. Based on emerging neuro-scientific research which has identified the association between finger…

Desoete, Annemie; Stock, Pieter – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2013
Counting abilities have been described as determinative precursors for a good development of later mathematical abilities. However, an important part of variance in mathematical achievement has also been associated with differences between instruction methods given in schools. In this study counting and instruction as predictors for mathematical…

Wilbert, Jurgen; Grunke, Matthias – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2010
Although there is an ongoing debate about which achievement feedback is most useful, the majority of researchers agree that social comparisons and a focus on competition are inappropriate for students with learning disabilities and otherwise academically-challenged students. They are highly at-risk to be unfavorably influenced by inappropriate…

Wade, Erin; Boon, Richard T.; Spencer, Vicky G. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2010
The aim of this research brief was to explore the efficacy of story mapping, with the integration of Kidspiration[C] software, to enhance the reading comprehension skills of story grammar components for elementary-age students. Three students served as the participants, two in third grade and one in fourth, with specific learning disabilities…

Berg, Derek H.; Hutchinson, Nancy L. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2010
This study investigated whether processing speed, short-term memory, and working memory accounted for the differential mental addition fluency between children typically achieving in arithmetic (TA) and children at-risk for failure in arithmetic (AR). Further, we drew attention to fluency differences in simple (e.g., 5 + 3) and complex (e.g., 16 +…

Harrison, Gina L. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2009
Cognitive, word-level reading, spelling and writing measures were administered to academically at-risk undergraduates with writing difficulties to examine their literacy profiles; and performance was compared to typically-achieving writers. The at-risk students were slower and less accurate on measures of sight word reading, lexical decision,…
