Eliason, Michele J.; Richman, Lynn C. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 1988
The performance of 90 learning disabled (LD) children (ages 6-14) on two measures of behavior and attentional skills was examined. As a group, the LD subjects exceeded normative standards on every measure of both scales. However, approximately 30% of the children accounted for the majority of behavioral problems. (Author/DB)

Dukes, Melinda; Saudargas, Richard A. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 1989
The study examined whether classroom context cues in videotapes showing a nonhandicapped and a learning disability expectancy would affect evaluation bias of 80 elementary-school teachers. Results suggest that teachers hold initial biases about the behavior of learning-disabled students but take into account the classroom context when rating…

Adaptive behavior, problem behavior, and self-perception of behavior of 54 learning-disabled (LD) elementary grade children and 54 non-LD children were compared, and mainstream teachers' perceptions of adaptive behavior were correlated with students' self-perceptions. Findings indicated LD students demonstrated less desirable adaptive behavior,…

Thirteen children (age 8-14) with an auditory-linguistic subtype of learning disability participated for 1 year in a Tomatis Program of auditory training and were assessed in a 2-year follow-up study. Results fail to support educational efficacy of the program but do support the efficacy of less exotic remedial procedures. (Author/JDD)

Salend, Spencer J.; Nowak, Miriam Roslyn – Learning Disability Quarterly, 1988
The effects of a peer previewing system on the oral reading skills of three learning-disabled students (ages 8 and 9) were examined. Results indicated that peer-previewing led to a marked decrease in the oral reading errors of all subjects. Reasons for the effectiveness of the procedure as well as its advantages are presented.

The study evaluated the utility of Kaufman-Assessment Battery for Children (K-ABC) subtests in differentiating learning-disabled children from students with other handicapping conditions, and compared K-ABC subtests with Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised subtests. Results showed that subtest scores did not enhance differential…
