Chemical Dependency in Students with and without Learning Disabilities.
Karacostas, Demetra D.; Fisher, Gary L.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v26 n7 p491-95 Aug-Sep 1993
Secondary students (88 with learning disabilities and 103 without) completed a substance abuse screening inventory. Of the 30 students who were classified as chemically dependent, 70% were students with learning disabilities. The presence or absence of a learning disability was a better predictor of chemical dependency than gender, ethnicity, age, socioeconomic status, or family composition. (Author/JDD)
