Studying the Learning Disabled Adolescent through Epidemiological and Intervention Research Tactics.
The paper examined the relationship between epidemiological and intervention research with learning disabled adolescents. Several historical trends and contemporary issues (e.g., the importance of prevention as opposed to treatment efforts, applied versus basic research, continuing questions related to definition and identification, and heterogeneity of the population) which effect research in learning disabilities are discussed. The author advocated the simultaneous and interactive pursuit of epidemiology and intervention research. (Author)
