Five Faces of Cognition: Theoretical Influences on Approaches to Learning Disabilities.
Hresko, Wayne P.; Reid, D. Kim
Learning Disability Quarterly, v11 n3 p211-16 Sum 1988
The article points out that the label "cognitive" has been used to designate five substantially different approaches to learning disabilities: information processing, metacognition, genetic epistemology, cognitive behavior modification, and the specific-abilities model. Despite the similar label, the instructional interventions of these approaches vary dramatically. (Author/DB)
