Classifying Children as LD: An Analysis of Current Practice in an Urban Setting.
Tomasi, Susan F.; Weinberg, Sharon L.
Learning Disability Quarterly, v22 n1 p31-42 Win 1999
This study examined the degree to which clinicians use various discrepancy models to identify a child as learning disabled by reviewing the case files of 105 urban (predominantly African-American) children who had been classified as LD and were receiving special education. Results suggested clinicians' decisions do not reflect recommended models but are reasonably consistent with criticized models. (DB)
