Goodness of Fit in the Home: Its Relationship to School Behavior and Achievement in Children with Learning Disabilities.
Feagans, Lynne V.; And Others
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v24 n7 p413-20 Aug-Sep 1991
This study examined whether a "goodness of fit" theoretical model (applied to 53 families with and 62 families without children with learning disabilities) might help in understanding children's school performance. For both groups, children rated as a "poor fit" in the home demonstrated poorer classroom behavior and poorer achievement over the elementary years. (Author/DB)
