Academic Red-Shirting among Children with Learning Disabilities
Barnard-Brak, Lucy
Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, v7 n1 p43-54 2009
The current study examined whether the parental practice of delayed kindergarten entrance, also known as academic red-shirting, was associated with gains in academic achievement among children with learning disabilities. Results indicate no significant differences in the academic achievement among children with learning disabilities who were delayed in their kindergarten entrance and those who entered on time. A discussion of special education intervention services and future research concludes the study. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
