Schindler, Maike; Bader, Eveline; Lilienthal, Achim J.; Schindler, Florian; Schabmann, Alfred – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019
Quantity recognition in whole number representations is a fundamental skill children need to acquire in their mathematical development. Despite the observed correlation to mathematics achievement, however, the ability to recognize quantities in structured whole number representations has not been studied extensively. In this article, we…

Röhm, Alexander; Schnöring, Annika; Hastall, Matthias R. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2018
Institutional and individual stigmatization are still major barriers for children with disabilities to access education. Teacher attitudes towards inclusive education play a crucial role in this regard, and are shaped by single-case descriptions from mass media or other sources. Building on exemplification theory and priming, two experiments with…

Botsas, George – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2017
The aim of the study was to investigate differences in cognitive and metacognitive strategy use in the reading comprehension of narrative and expository texts among students with learning disabilities (SLD) and without learning disabilities (SWOLD). A total of 122 fifth and sixth graders took part in the study. Half of them (n = 61) were SLD…

Alves, Kat D.; Kennedy, Michael J.; Brown, Tiara S.; Solis, Michael – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2015
"Reading comprehension" is difficult for many students with disabilities, including those with specific learning disabilities. However these students can be explicitly taught strategies to improve their comprehension abilities. One such strategy is teaching students story grammar in order to provide them with a framework for…

Weisenburgh-Snyder, Amy B.; Malmquist, Susan K.; Robbins, Joanne K.; Lipshin, Alison M. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2015
In the generative classroom, teachers provide well-designed learning environments that result in the combination, recombination, and reorganization of repertoires such that new untaught repertoires are likely to occur. One component that can contribute to such generativity is Precision Teaching (PT), a frequency building instructional…

Dunn, Michael W. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2007
There is growing evidence that the current method of identifying students with a learning disability (LD) is ineffective. The wait-to-fail model of assessing students after second/third grade as well as conceptual problems in using intelligence tests for identification result in students not receiving the assistance they need during the…

Santangelo, Tanya; Harris, Karen R.; Graham, Steve – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2007
Many students find writing extremely difficult and frustrating because they are not able to learn and apply the strategies used by skilled writers. Self-Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD) is a comprehensive, flexible model that explicitly helps students learn to manage the writing process. An extensive body of research has documented that SRSD…

Li, Daqi – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2007
Students with learning disabilities (LD) often experience difficulties in writing fluently and using a diversity of words. To help these students, specific and effective writing strategies must be incorporated into instruction and demonstrated to them through modeling. This study examined the effectiveness of using a story map and story map…

Garcia, Jesus N.; de Caso, Ana Maria – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2006
This study aimed at verifying whether a specific program on writing self-efficacy, designed to train the four sources of self-efficacy suggested by Bandura (1997), could improve not only productivity and quality of writing composition in students with LD and their processes of writing, but also their writing self-efficacy beliefs and other…
