Lapadat, Judith C.
Journal of College Reading and Learning, v29 n1 p73-81 Fall 1998
Responds to a case study in this issue that discussed the differing academic achievement of two at-risk college students. Suggests the need to look beyond the disability labels applied to students. Suggests considering cognitive motivational factors such as beliefs, goals, and expectations, as well as the results of previous institutional interventions when working with students to identify effective supports.
