The Historical Foundation of Learning Disabilities: A Quantitative Synthesis Assessing the Validity of Strauss and Werner's Exogenous versus Endogenous Distinction of Mental Retardation.
Kavale, Kenneth A.; Forness, Steven R.
Remedial and Special Education (RASE), v6 n5 p18-24 Sep-Oct 1985
The paper reviews research of A. Strauss and H. Werner on behavioral differences between exogeneous (brain injured) and endogeneous (familial-cultural) mental retardation using quantitative methods of research synthesis. Findings offer little empirical support for the presumed behavioral differences and reveal considerable overlap among the exogeneous and endogeneous samples studied by Strauss and Werner. (Author/CL)
