The Search for Understanding of Learning Disabilities: A Response to Kavale and Forness.
McPhail, Jean C.; Palincsar, Annemarie S.
Learning Disability Quarterly, v21 n4 p297-305 Fall 1998
In response to Kavale and Forness (EC 630 380), this article suggests that doing "science" is not without philosophical and ideological values. Sections address the different worlds of scientific communities and critically analyze the political side of learning disabilities from the scientific side. The article concludes with a call for diverse knowledge bases in the study of learning disabilities. (DB)
