Major Research Findings of the University of Kansas Institute for Research in Learning Disabilities.
Clark, Frances L., Ed.
The document contains abstracts and major findings of research conducted by the University of Kansas Institute for Research in Learning Disabilities on the learning disabled (LD) adolescent and young adult in both school and nonschool settings. Major findings are presented in three sections--cognitive/academic characteristics and setting demands, intervention, and social skills. Provided for each section are: a brief statement of issues; abstracts with each study's purpose, methodology, and major findings; and a statement of implications. Noted among conclusions are that the quality of life of LD young adults appears to be lower or more limited than a representative group of young adults, that the demands of the regular class setting must be used to define the interventions used for LD students, and that LD adolescents are not notably different from other adolescents when social behaviors are measured quantitatively. A complete list of the 53 research reports and 10 research monographs is included. (SB)
