Englert, Carol Sue; And Others
Learning Disability Quarterly, v10 n1 p29-36 Win 1987
The problem solving performance of 24 learning disabled and 24 non-disabled second and fourth grade children was investigated using embedded irrelevant linguistic and numerical information within addition word problems. Irrelevant numerical information but not irrelevant linguistic information affected performance of all groups; however, LD performance was affected more. (Author/DB)
