Toward a Two-Factor Theory of One Type of Mathematics Disabilities.
Robinson, Carol S.; Menchetti, Bruce M.; Torgesen, Joseph K.
Learning Disabilities: Research & Practice, v17 n2 p81-89 May 2002
This article proposes a two-factor theory of mathematics disabilities based on the premise that weak cognitive representations lead to poorer retrieval of information from long term memory. Comparison of children with math disabilities alone (MD) and those with both math and reading disabilities (MD/RD) suggests that weak phonological processing underlies MD/RD and weak number sense underlies MD only.
