Behavioral Problems and Differential WISC-R Characteristics of Learning Disabled Children.
Wickers, Frank C.; O'Sheel, Margaret R.
Specific Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children Revised subtest scores and score relationship of 33 learning disabled (LD) children (6-12 years old) were analyzed by chi square and t tests for significant differences between those LD children displaying behavior problems and those who did not exhibit such problems. Comparison of Similarities, Comprehension, and Picture Arrangement subtest ratios revealed no significant differences between the two groups, however those Ss whose Picture Arrangement ratios were greater than both their Similarities and Comprehension ratios made up a significantly greater proportion of the behavior problem group. Findings suggested that an LD child's thought processes help determine his/her pattern of behavior. (Author/CL)
