Learning Disabilities Definitions and Criteria Used by State Education Departments.
Mercer, Cecil D.; And Others
Learning Disability Quarterly, v19 n4 p217-32 Fall 1996
A survey of 51 state departments of education (including Washington, DC) regarding their definitions of learning disabilities, identification criteria, and operationalization procedures showed the continued effect of the 1977 federal definition and criteria, while revealing variations in state definitions and criteria. The impact on prereferral interventions and noncategorial identification is discussed. (Author/CR)
