Academic Intrinsic Motivation and Attitudes toward School and Learning of Learning Disabled Students.
Wilson, Donald R.; David, William J.
Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, v9 n3 p148-56 1994
Administration of 2 affective tests to 89 students with learning disabilities (LD) in grades 4-8 revealed that subjects perceived the school environment and academic tasks as 2 separate factors. LD students, compared to nondisabled students, exhibited more positive attitudes toward the school environment than for academic learning tasks. School attitudes improved as grade level increased.
