Multiple Intelligences and Underachievement: Lessons from Individuals with Learning Disabilities.
Hearne, Dixon; Stone, Suki
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v28 n7 p439-48 Aug-Sep 1995
This article notes the failures of traditional deficit models of learning disabilities and considers, instead, possibilities of Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences. It summarizes findings on talents of students labeled learning disabled, evidence of their abilities, implications of these for schools, and preliminary recommendations for teacher preparation and instructional practices.
