Academic Performance Difficulties: Age and Grade at First Referral
Harman, Marsha J.; Kordinak, S. Thomas; Bruce, A. Jerry
Journal on Educational Psychology, v1 n3 p14-20 Nov 2007-Jan 2008
Archival records of 43 children referred for diagnosis and treatment for academic difficulties were examined. Results revealed a significant difference for age at first referral and diagnoses. Those with disorders such as learning disability and severe emotional disturbance tended to be older, while the ADHD and dysthymic disorders tended to be younger. Similarly, there was a significant difference for grade at first referral and diagnoses. Again, those with disorders of learning disability and emotional disturbance were in higher grades, whereas the ADHD and dysthymic disorders were in lower grades. There were no significant differences for WISC-III IQs or indexes. Nor was gender a significant variable.
