Grolnick, Wendy S.; Ryan, Richard M.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v23 n3 p177-84 Mar 1990
This study with 37 learning-disabled (LD) elementary-age children found that LD children were lower in perceived cognitive competence and academic self-regulation than nondisabled control groups but were comparable to low achieving children. LD children were also likely to perceive academic outcomes as controlled by powerful others. (Author/DB)
