Why IQ Is Relevant to the Definition of Learning Disabilities.
Torgesen, Joseph K.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v22 n8 p484-86 Oct 1989
In commenting on Linda Siegel's argument (in EC221505) that Intelligence Quotient is not causally related to reading difficulties, this paper argues that Intelligence Quotient is relevant to the definition of reading disabilities but that present knowledge may not justify its use in the selection of children for special services.
