Locus of Control and Learning Disabilities: A Review and Discussion.
Dudley-Marling, Curtis C.; And Others
Perceptual and Motor Skills, v54 n2 p503-14 Apr 1982
A literature review reveals that learning disabled children are more likely than normal achievers to attribute successes, but not failures, to external factors. The implications of locus of control for the field of learning disabilities are discussed in terms of its relation to academic achievement, learned helplessness, and remediation programs. (Author/RD)
