Insights into Learning Disabilities through the Piagetian Perspective.
Trepanier, Mary L.
Insights into learning disabilities can result from adopting the Piagetian perspective. Although significant contributions have been made by taking a psychometric view of learning disabilities, these contributions are limited because the psychometric view focuses on quantifiable differences in functioning, the end product of thinking, and the static aspects of development. The Piagetian perspective provides knowledge about the qualitative, individual changes in thinking; an integrated view of intelligence and development; a theoretical framework to describe and compare the course of development; and a method for examining the process of thinking in learning disabled children.
