Mathematical Problem Solving for Youth with ADHD, with and without Learning Disabilities.
Zentall, Sydney S.; Ferkis, Mary Ann
Learning Disability Quarterly, v16 n1 p6-18 Win 1993
This review of research finds that, when IQ and reading ability are controlled, "true" math deficits of students with learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders, and attention deficit hyperactive disorders (ADHD) are specific to mathematical concepts and problem types. Slow computation affects problem solving by increasing attentional load. Implications for instruction are outlined. (JDD)
