Hughes, Elizabeth M. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019
Students with mathematics learning disabilities (MLD) often require more intensive intervention in addition to quality core mathematics instruction. This research evaluates the effects of a point of view video modeling (POVM) intervention including virtual demonstrating of concrete mathematics manipulatives to teach simplifying fractions. Three…

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…

The read-aloud accommodation (RA) is frequently provided to students with high-incidence disabilities to facilitate their access to learning opportunities during instruction and to allow them to demonstrate knowledge and skills during testing. Empirical support for this accommodation has been somewhat mixed, and has primarily focused on…

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…

Hebert, Michael; Graham, Steve; Rigby-Wills, Hope; Ganson, Katie – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2014
Writing may be an especially useful tool for improving the reading comprehension of lower performing readers and students with disabilities. However, it is reasonable to expect that students with poor writing skills in particular, may actually be less adept at using writing to improve their reading skills, and may not be able to do so without…

Benedek-Wood, Elizabeth; Mason, Linda H.; Wood, Philip H.; Hoffman, Katie E.; McGuire, Ashley – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2014
A staggered A-B design study was used to evaluate the effects of Self- Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD) instruction for quick writing in middle school science across four classrooms. A sixth-grade science teacher delivered all students' writing assessment and SRSD instruction for informative quick writing. Results indicated that performance…

Reed, Deborah K.; Vaughn, Sharon – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2012
Many students with reading difficulties in grades 4 through 12 experience challenges in understanding and learning from text. Some of these learners have demonstrated reading challenges from the early grades and have not acquired successful reading skills. Others were adequate readers in the early grades when word reading was the focus and when…

Mitchell, Belinda B.; Deshler, Donald D.; Lenz, B. Keith Ben-Hanania – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2012
The purpose of this study was to examine the role of the special educator within a response-to-intervention (RTI) framework and to examine what instructional behaviors special educators evidence most frequently in the advanced RTI tiers (i.e., tiers beyond tier 1). Specifically, these two issues were investigated with regard to: (a) proportion of…
