Synthesis of Research Symposium at CLD's 24th International Conference on Learning Disabilities: "Must Reads" for 2009
Bryant, Brian R.; Bryant, Diane Pedrotty; Boudah, Dan; Klingner, Janette
Learning Disability Quarterly, v33 n2 p133-140 Spr 2010
For several years, the Research Committee of the Council for Learning Disabilities (CLD) has sponsored a session at its annual conference where committee members have shared their "Must Reads," articles that have appeared in the literature within the previous year that they deemed particularly noteworthy. The rationale for such a session for busy professionals was summed up several years ago by David Scanlon and his colleagues (Scanlon, Boudah, Elksnin, Gersten, & Klingner, 2004), who noted, "Despite the fact that busy readers can barely sample all that is published, professional publications are a primary means for communicating research, theory, and policy within the profession. Keeping up is a daunting challenge" (p. 215). The purpose of the conference session, and this article, is to provide one answer to that "daunting challenge" by reviewing a few of the noteworthy articles that had recently appeared in print that may have been missed or forgotten, but that warrant attention. In October 2009, CLD's Research Committee members presented their "Must Reads" in Dallas, Texas, at the organization's 31st annual International Conference on Learning Disabilities. In this article, the presenters summarize a few of their selected articles and state why each article is a "Must Read."
