How Should Reading Disabilities Be Operationalized? A Survey of Experts.
Speece, Deborah L.; Shekita, Lesley
Learning Disabilities: Research & Practice, v17 n2 p118-23 May 2002
A survey of 218 learning disabilities experts found only 30 percent believed IQ-reading achievement discrepancy should be a marker of reading disability. Over two thirds selected three markers: reading achievement, phonemic awareness, and treatment validity. Over 75 percent believed exclusion criteria should remain part of the definition with mental retardation as the most frequently selected exclusion criterion. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
