A Review of Research on Reading and Learning Disabilities.
Usova, George M.
Research on the causes, prediction, and specific problems of learning disabled children is reviewed for the years 1967-1978. The literature on the following questions is examined: Can learning disabilities be predicted and will early identification help alleviate the problem? Can training programs significantly remediate reading disabilities? What effects do vision and visual perception have on learning disabilities? Is oral language an indication of learning disability? Are learning disabilities inherited and does maturation have an effect on the disabled child? Do learning disabled children exhibit poor attitudes and can these attitudes be helped through remediation? Is memory effected by learning disabilities and is speed in relation to time a significant factor? It is concluded that the majority of studies indicate that learning disabilities can be remediated through various programs and training techniques after they have been predicted and diagnosed. (DB)
