Two Key Concepts in the Diagnosis of Learning Disabilities and the Habilitation of Learning.
Reynolds, Cecil R.
Learning Disability Quarterly, v15 n1 p2-12 Win 1992
Two key concepts in diagnosing learning disabilities ("severe discrepancy" and "process dysfunction") are reviewed, and their relationship to the habilitation of learning is discussed. Guidelines are given for calculating a severe discrepancy, and the evaluation of processing skills is discussed. Strength models of remediation are favored instead of deficit-centered remediation.
