Factors That Influence the Book Selection Process of Students with Special Needs.
Swartz, Mary Katherine; Hendricks, Cindy Gillespie
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v43 n7 p608-18 Apr 2000
Finds that children with special needs like the same kinds of books as other children and should be allowed to choose their own books for pleasure reading. Shows that, in addition to topic/subject matter, writing style, cover/illustrations, characters, and back-of-the-book summaries, these students also considered title, length of book, movie/TV adaptations, and a friend's recommendation.
