Sam Kirk: The Man Who Made Special Education Special.
Minskoff, Esther H.
Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, v13 n1 p15-21 1998
This tribute to Samuel Kirk, an early leader in the field of learning disabilities, focuses on his conceptualization of the diagnostic-prescriptive approach and his work on cognitive processing and intra-individual differences. His work is seen as leading to the recognition of the importance of early intervention, the role of process training, and the principle that all children can learn. (DB)
