Krawec, Jennifer; Steinberg, Marissa – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
Opportunities for students to learn mathematics through innovative, authentic experiences in an inquiry-based instructional approach have become much more common for students in regular and advanced math classes. Yet, the same cannot be said for students with learning disabilities. One of the primary reasons is that key tenets of the inquiry…

Lambert, Rachel; Chun, Mina; Davis, Jessie; Ceja, Kay Lynn; Aguilar, Katie; Moran, Pauline; Manset, Lindsey – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
Educational research undervalues the experiences of people with disabilities, including those with learning disabilities and/or dyslexia, whom we call "insiders." In this study, we examined narratives pertaining to schooling from published memoirs and/or interviews with 30 insiders with learning disabilities or dyslexia. First, we…

Carey, Lisa Beth; Stephan, Catherine; Pritchard, Alison E. – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
Existing research suggests that students with ADHD may not receive the expected benefit from some testing accommodations. One possible explanation for this lack of benefit might be that students do not receive adequate instruction in and practice with testing accommodations to make them effective. The current study was designed to investigate…

Tuckwiller, Elizabeth D.; Dardick, William R.; Kutscher, Elisabeth L. – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
The purpose of this mixed methodology study was to empirically investigate how adolescents with learning disabilities/differences report and experience self-determination, grit, mindset, and optimism. Using items from established scales, we gathered survey data (n=27) as well as interview data (n=23), and examined the ability of mindset, grit, and…

Gaultney, Jane F.; Peach, Hannah D.; Banerjee, Manju – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
Both ADHD and poor sleep are associated with deficits in prefrontal cortex functioning, and related executive processes (e.g. directing attention, judgement and decision-making). The present study examined whether sleep factors provided an indirect link between certain symptoms of ADHD and impulsivity or future orientation among college students.…

Powell, Sarah R.; Stevens, Elizabeth A.; Berry, Katherine A. – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
Word problems require students to read a language-based problem, identify necessary information to answer a prompt, and perform calculation(s) to develop a problem solution. Solving word problems proves particularly challenging for students with mathematics difficulties because skill in reading, interpretation of language, and mathematics are…

Celinska, Dorota – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2018
Overrepresentation of African American students in special education has been related to the unfavorable academic outcomes and achievement gap for these students. In a search for a comprehensive account of the roots of these perpetuating concerns, narrative skills are of importance because of their relation to reading achievement and school…

Bone, Erin Kae; Bouck, Emily C. – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2018
Students with disabilities often struggle with grade-level mathematics without appropriate support and accommodations. This study compared the performance of middle school students with disabilities on computational-based mathematics assessments when they had access to calculators and when they did not. Using a single-case ABAB design, data were…

Nielsen, Kathleen; Henderson, Sheila; Barnett, Anna L.; Abbott, Robert D.; Berninger, Virginia – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2018
Movement, which draws on motor skills and executive functions for managing them, plays an important role in literacy learning (e.g., movement of mouth during oral reading and movement of hand and fingers during writing); but relatively little research has focused on movement skills in students with specific learning disabilities as the current…

De La Paz, Susan; Butler, Cameron – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2018
This article considers the topic of motivation for writing, and explores connections between writing interventions and motivation. We review the extant literature with K12 students who participated in writing interventions and examine the motivation outcomes in those studies to determine whether improvements in writing ability also led to…
