LD and Delinquency: Rethinking the "Link".
Malmgren, Kimber; Abbott, Robert D.; Hawkins, J. David
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v32 n3 p194-200 May-Jun 1999
Longitudinal data on 515 fifth graders, including 51 with learning disabilities (LD), were examined for correlations between learning disabilities and juvenile delinquency. Self-report data on delinquent activity and court records were examined seven years later. LD status did not account for a significant portion of unique variance in the delinquency variables when demographic variables were controlled. (Author/DB)
