Attention Deficit Disorder: A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing...Again.
Sawyer, Walter E.
Reading Teacher, v42 n4 p310-12 Jan 1989
Examines the trend of using Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), commonly known as hyperactivity, to classify students as learning disabled (LD). Notes that ADD characteristics are frequently observed in children with reading problems, and argues that misclassifying students as LD denies them appropriate reading instruction. (MM)
