Simmons, Deborah C.; Kameenui, Edward J.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v23 n5 p291-97,316 May 1990
The study found that, compared to normally achieving students, 24 students (age 10 and 12) with learning disabilities were less able in vocabulary production tasks and comparable in ability to use pictorial responses to demonstrate vocabulary knowledge. When equated in reading achievement, learning-disabled 10 year olds were poorer in composite vocabulary knowledge. (Author/DB)
