The Relationship between Learning Disabilities and Persisting Delinquency.
Waldie, Karen; Spreen, Otfried
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v26 n6 p417-23 Jun-Jul 1993
Sixty-five subjects diagnosed as learning disabled and reporting police contact by the median age of 18 were interviewed at age 25. Analysis on parent and subject variables correctly classified 75% of subjects into persisting and nonpersisting delinquent groups and revealed that personality characteristics such as impulsivity and poor judgment discriminated between groups.
