An Instructional-Based Model for Assessing Learning Disabilities.
Humphries, Thomas W.; Wilson, Anne Keeton
Canadian Journal of Special Education, v2 n1 p55-66 1986
Overreliance on test-based assessment of learning disabilities can produce diagnostic results of questionable validity and prove stigmatizing for the child. An instructional-based model focuses on evaluation of the child's response to teaching. Observation and analysis of the student's reaction yeilds results that are more readily translatable into practical remedial methods. (Author/CB)
