Differential Ability Scales: Profiles of Learning-Disabled Subtypes.
McIntosh, David E.; Gridley, Betty E.
Psychology in the Schools, v30 n1 p11-24 Jan 1993
Administered Differential Ability Scales (DAS) to 83 children and adolescents with learning disabilities. Identified six subgroups: generalized, high functioning, normal, underachievement, borderline, and dyseidetic. Not all subgroups displayed expected discrepancy between intelligence and achievement associated with current definitions of learning disabled. In subsequent discriminant analyses, both achievement and diagnostic subtests were necessary from accuracy in classification. (Author/NB)
