Why Siegel's Arguments Are Irrelevant to the Definition of Learning Disabilities.
Baldwin, R. Scott; Vaughn, Sharon
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v22 n8 p513,520 Oct 1989
This critique of a paper by Linda Siegel (EC221505) challenges Siegel's assumptions on the relationship of Intelligence Quotient to learning disabilities as being unacceptable and non-literature-based, and points out that discussion of Intelligence Quotient cutoffs may be moot given that 49 states employ no cutoff for learning disabilities.
