Anna's Story: Narratives of Personal Experience about Being Labeled Learning Disabled.
Reid, D. Kim; Button, Linda J.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v28 n10 p602-14 Dec 1995
Analysis of the personal narrative of an adolescent labeled as learning disabled finds that her discourse conforms to linguistic expectations deemed acceptable in school and identifies themes of personal experience associated with isolation, undervaluing, and oppression. The narrative structure was reminiscent of the oral tradition. Giving voice to students in educational decision making is recommended. (Author/DB)
