A Comparison of the Performance of Learning Disabled Students and Regular Classroom Students in the Areas of Lateral Awareness and Directionality.
Lockavitch, Joseph F., Jr.; Yates, Toni Smith
The study was designed to determine if there exists a significant difference in the right-left labeling ability of 15 learning disabled students as compared to 15 regular classroom students at the fourth grade level. Ss were tested for lateral awareness and directionality. Results supported the hypothesis that there exists a significant difference between learning disabled and regular classroom students in the areas of lateral awareness and directionality. It is concluded that children who exhibit difficulty with right-left labeling ability do not exhibit academically specific symptoms but rather can exhibit any combination of academic and nonacademic symptoms.
