An Approach for the Design and Implementation of Non-Academic Interventions with Learning Disabled Adolescents.
The paper presents an alternative approach to research in learning disabilities among adolescents and young adults. The author proposes that low achieving adolescents labeled "learning disabled" can and should play a role in research efforts in which they are involved. While much research is seen to focus on educational interventions following basic research formats, the research described in the paper would focus on psychosocial concerns within a largely natural or nonartificial context. In addition, the contribution which the learning disabled adolescent can make to the design and implementation of their own treatment program is stressed. (Author)
