Early Identification and Interventions for Children at Risk for Learning Disabilities
Lange, Stephen M.; Thompson, Brent
International Journal of Special Education, v21 n3 p108-119 2006
We propose that a model for early screening of children aged 3-5 years for vulnerability for learning disabilities risk can result in preventive interventions, including collaborative interventions planned through parent-professional partnership. The goals of screening and preventive services would be to mitigate increased risk of learning disabilities in elementary school years. The present article describes the rationale for early screening, dimensions that should comprise brief screening tools for use from ages 3-5 years, and potential preventive interventions that have empirical support.
