Pre-Service Teachers' Memories of Learning Disabilities: The Search for Markers
Miller, Maury; Gresham, Pamela
Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, v17 n1 p17-21 2011
The search for "markers", or indicators of learning disabilities, has shown that teachers can be good indicators, but literature has not shown which markers or indicators are most noticed or receiving most of teachers' attention. This investigation asked preservice teachers to describe their own first memories of students with learning disabilities in school. A standard checklist was then used to record the markers which were described in these memories. The most over behaviors were shown to be the ones most remembered and described. (Contains 1 table.)
