Learning Disability and the History of Science: Paradigm or Paradox?
Kavale, Kenneth A.; Forness, Steven R.
Remedial and Special Education (RASE), v6 n4 p12-23 Jul-Aug 1985
In attempting to explain definitional problems in the field of learning disabilities, the authors review concepts from the history and philosophy of science. It is concluded that learning disability is a victim of its own history, and a breaking from the past is necessary for the definitional problem to move closer to resolution. (Author/CL)
