Implicit Notions about Learning Disabilities: Some Directions for Definitions.
Swanson, H. Lee; Christie, Lynda
Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, v9 n4 p244-54 Fall 1994
Three studies investigated 98 children's and 252 adults' implicit knowledge about learning disabilities. Overall, the studies suggested that professionals outside the field of special education, as well as nondisabled children, have fairly well-developed ideas about what constitutes a learning disability. Exemplars of tacit knowledge matched most components found in current definitions of learning disabilities. (Author/DB)
