State Disparities in the Diagnosis and Placement of Pupils with Learning Disabilities.
Lester, Gillian; Kelman, Mark
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v30 n6 p599-607 Nov-Dec 1997
This study compared state disparities in the diagnosis of students with learning disabilities. It found that state prevalence of learning disability was moderately explained by demographic and sociopolitical factors (unlike four common physical disabilities) and that these same factors strongly predicted the extent of mainstreaming and the size of the nonmainstreamed cognitively disabled population.
