McCarthy, Jeanne M.; Harris, Martha Jane; Reeves, Karla K.
Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, v12 n3 p146-50 Sum 1997
A study investigated ways that each of the 50 states serve preschool children (ages 3-5) with specific learning disabilities (SLD), the impact of the preschool-specific/noncategorical label, and the quantitative criteria used for eligibility. Although all states reported that preschoolers with SLD could receive services, different eligibility criteria were used. (Author/CR)
