The Relationship of Season of Birth and Special Education Referral.
Wallingford, Elizabeth L.; Prout, H. Thompson
Psychology in the Schools, v37 n4 p379-87 Jul 2000
Study evaluated referrals of students (N=1,222) for special education from grades K-5 to determine if youngest children were experiencing a higher rate of referral. Data confirmed the hypothesis that children referred for evaluations within the 5- to 7-year-old-group had summer birthdates. Article discusses ways of providing educational services for at-risk primary-age students. (Author/JDM)
