On Babies and Bathwater: Addressing the Problems of Identification of Learning Disabilities.
Scruggs, Thomas E.; Mastropieri, Margo A.
Learning Disability Quarterly, v25 n3 p155-68 Sum 2002
This article reviews problems in identification of learning disabilities and considers proposed alternatives to present procedures. It argues that the major problems of over identification, variability, and specificity, can be eliminated by increasing specificity and consistency of state criteria and strict adherence to identification criteria on the local implementation level.
