How Real Are Learning Disabilities?
Armstrong, Thomas
Learning, v14 n2 p44-47 Sep 1985
What makes the surge in learning disabled (LD) children disturbing is that no one clearly understands what LD really means. LD is usually defined in terms of disability, deficiency, and disadvantage--rather than ability, asset, and advantage. Studies now reveal that LD children actually possess positive learning styles and abilities that were overlooked. (MT)
