Retention of Selected Reading and Arithmetic Skills by Learning Disabled Pupils and Non-Disabled Pupils over Summer Vacation.
Shaw, T. Vanston
The impact of summer vacation on the reading and arithmetic skills of 166 learning disabled pupils (6 to 11 years old) was examined. Ss included pupils in resource programs or special classes. Analysis of scores on the Wide Range Achievement Test (reading and arithmetic subtests) before and after summer vacation revealed significant differences in retention between LD Ss and control Ss (LD Ss retained less). Significant differences were also revealed between LD students in two different placements (special classes and resource specialist programs) and their nonLD peers. However, while the hypotheses were confirmed, the level of acceptance was weak. Implications and recommendations for future study are noted. (CL)
