What Definitions of Learning Disability Say and Don't Say: A Critical Analysis.
Kavale, Kenneth A.; Forness, Steven R.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v33 n3 p239-56 May-Jun 2000
This article critically analyzes available definitions of learning disability. The general problem of definition is discussed first, followed by a discussion of individual definitions from the earliest to the latest. It is concluded that the definitions fail to provide substantive insight into the nature of the condition. (Contains extensive references.) (Author/CR)
