Who Will Be Learning Disabled after the Reauthorization of IDEA? Two Very Distinct Perspectives.
Coutinho, Martha J.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v28 n10 p664-68 Dec 1995
This article addresses the proposal of Shaw and others (1995) to replace the current federal definition of learning disabilities with an operationalized version proposed by the National Joint Committee on Learning Disabilities in the reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Comparison of Shaw's recommendations with criteria of the Office of Special Education Programs finds much agreement and some discrepancies. (DB)
