Keogh, Barbara K.; Weisner, Thomas
Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, v8 n1 p3-10 Win 1993
Four predictive models offering an ecocultural perspective on the educational and personal-social development of children at risk for learning disabilities and other learning problems are proposed: main effect, additive, multiplicative, and compensatory. Preliminary results favor the compensatory and additive models. Both risk and protective factors should be considered in diagnosis and intervention planning. (Author/DB)
