Barsch, Ray H.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v25 n1 p6-16 Jan 1992
This article, originally published in 1968, examines learning disabilities from the perspectives of history, disciplines (calling for interdisciplinary convergence), education (viewing learning disabilities as a concept rather than a category), teacher preparation, province (evaluating the appropriateness of various delivery systems), and time (noting a new recognition of human divergence).
