Culturally Diverse Rural Students: At Special Risk for LD Classification.
Coffey, Kenneth M.; Obringer, S. John
Rural Special Education Quarterly, v19 n2 p15-19 Spr 2000

Three possible ways of modifying the assessment protocol were attempted. A discrepancy formula incorporating a minimum full-scale IQ score of 85 balanced the number of non-white students identified as learning disabled. (TD)
