Brulles, Dina; Winebrenner, Susan – Educational Leadership, 2012

One practical intervention--cluster grouping--provides an inclusive…

A fundamental assumption in the identification of specific learning disabilities (SLD) has been that the presence of a severe discrepancy between ability and academic achievement is a valid marker for the presence of a SLD. This assumption is based on the notion that discrepant low achievers constitute a unique group of children who are different…

Rosenfeld, S. James – Communique, 2010
Despite being well-settled as a matter of law, the issue of whether test protocols must be disclosed to parents continues to be a source of dispute between schools, school psychologists, and parents.
