Mothers' Expectations, Interactions, and Achievement Attributions for Their Learning Disabled or Normally Achieving Sons.
Tollison, Patricia; And Others
Journal of Special Education, v21 n3 p83-93 Fall 1987
Mothers of learning-disabled (N=15) and normally achieving (N=16) elementary-school boys administered an academic task to their children, and mothers' expectations and attributions for their sons' performance were assessed. Mothers of learning disabled pupils held lower performance expectations, provided more negative nonverbal responses, and more often attributed their sons' failure to lack of ability. (Author/JDD)
