Memory for Everyday Information in Students with Learning Disabilities.
McNamara, John K.; Wong, Bernice
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v36 n5 p394-406 Sep-Oct 2003
This study compared students with (n=20) and without (n=40) learning disabilities (LD) on their recall of academic information and information encountered in their everyday lives. Students with LD performed poorly on both types of recall, suggesting that they may have problems with retrieval and working memory. The availability of cues significantly decreased ability differences between groups. (Contains references.) (DB)
