Walsh, Jennifer B.; Hord, Casey – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019

In this exploratory case study, the researchers conducted a qualitative analysis of six teaching sessions to describe the use of gestures and diagrams by a teacher and her students with learning disabilities when engaging in secondary level algebra (e.g., Algebra I & II content). The teacher and her students used gestures, such as pointing and…

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…

Hwang, Jiwon; Riccomini, Paul J.; Morano, Stephanie – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019

Algebra problem solving is one of the most difficult areas in the mathematics curriculum for secondary students with learning disabilities (LD) due to the higher-order reasoning demands and strategic thinking required. The purpose of this review is to examine how effective algebra problem-solving interventions conceptualize the cognitive processes…

Duchaine, Ellen L.; Jolivette, Kristine; Fredrick, Laura D.; Alberto, Paul A. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2018

Students with academic, social, and emotional disabilities often demonstrate challenging behaviors and struggle to remain focused on the lesson, learn less that their peers, resulting in lower academic achievement. Research has demonstrated that the more actively engaged students are in the lesson, the more they learn, and therefore the more…

Zhang, Dake – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2017

We examined the effectiveness of (a) a working memory (WM) training program and (b) a combination program involving both WM training and direct instruction for students with geometry difficulties (GD). Four students with GD participated. A multiple-baseline design across participants was employed. During the Phase 1, students received six sessions…

Myers, Jonté A.; Wang, Jun; Brownell, Mary T.; Gagnon, Joseph Calvin – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2015

The purpose of our literature review was to extend and update Maccini, Mulcahy, and Wilson's (2007) review of the literature on mathematics interventions for secondary students with learning disabilities (LD). An extensive search of the research literature netted 15 research studies that focused on mathematics interventions for secondary students…

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…

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…

Cawley, John F.; Foley, Teresa E.; Hayes, Anne Marie – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2009

The purpose of this paper is to present a summary of selected facets of geometry and measurement in elementary school programs and to describe curricula content options designed to demonstrate the feasibility of seeking high level outcomes and meanings for students with learning disabilities. While there are a multitude of published papers…

Tournaki, Nelly; Bae, Young Seh; Kerekes, Judit – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2008

This study examined the effects on math performance of the use of the rekenrek, a manipulative developed by Adrian Treffers. The rekenrek looks like an abacus, but differs in that it is based on a five-structure and not a ten-structure system. It is comprised of two rows of 10 beads, each broken into two sets of 5 by color (i.e., in each row the…

Witzel, Bradley S. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2005

The importance of algebra instruction has increased in the United States in the past few years. Thus, in most states, middle school students are required to take Algebra 1. Middle school students with math difficulties in inclusion algebra settings may require a different instructional approach. The purpose of this research was to compare student…
