Ackerman, Peggy T.; And Others – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 1990
Eighty-two elementary school children with attention deficit disorder (ADD) and dyslexia made more errors than 83 normally reading children with ADD on a test of rhyme and alliteration. A subgroup of dyslexic children who were sensitive to rhyme and alliteration scored higher than other dyslexic children on a test of spatial ability. (Author/DB)

Simmons, Deborah C.; Kameenui, Edward J. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 1990
The study found that, compared to normally achieving students, 24 students (age 10 and 12) with learning disabilities were less able in vocabulary production tasks and comparable in ability to use pictorial responses to demonstrate vocabulary knowledge. When equated in reading achievement, learning-disabled 10 year olds were poorer in composite…

Bender, William N.; Smith, Jeffrey K. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 1990
Meta-analysis on 25 studies found that both methodologically strong and weak studies demonstrated significant behavioral deficits of children with learning disabilities in 5 areas: on-task behavior, off-task behavior, conduct disorders, distractibility, and shy/withdrawn behavior. Effect sizes clustered around 1 standard deviation. (Author/DB)

Eighty-six adults (mean age 26 years) with learning disabilities were evaluated clinically using the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised (WAIS-R). Significant relationships were identified between subjects' WAIS-R intelligence quotients and scaled scores and job success. (Author/DB)

Rothenberg, Julia Johnson – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 1990
Subjects at risk for specific learning disabilities were assessed on standardized measures throughout elementary and middle school, following an intervention based on task analysis of kindergarten curricula and team teaching. All results were significant for the treatment group in relation to an at-risk cohort. (Author/DB)

Houck, Cherry K.; And Others – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 1990
Perceptions of secondary learning disability (LD) program supervisors (N=110) were compared with views of secondary LD teachers (N=135) regarding specific program features, field-related issues, and suggestions for program improvement. Responses indicated that the supervisors were more positive and often held significantly different views than LD…

Welch, Marshall – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 1989
It can be argued that the Regular Education Initiative is merely an extension of the mainstreaming movement rather than a call for innovative reform. Before any reform is introduced, educators must take into account the culture of the school and the process of change to maximize the potential for success. (MSE)

Wallace, Ginger W.; Bott, Deborah A. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 1989
Four eighth-grade students with learning disabilities were taught paragraph-writing skills using a metacognitive text structure strategy, which included an outline as a paragraph planning guide. Results suggest that when provided with such direct, intensive instruction, these students can improve their paragraph writing. (Author/MSE)

Brier, Norman – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 1989
Data on the relatively high prevalence of learning disabilities among populations of delinquents are presented, and three explanatory hypotheses are examined in the context of the research literature: the susceptibility hypothesis, the school failure hypothesis, and the differential treatment hypothesis. A multifactorial explanation is offered.…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; And Others – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 1989
A study assessed the effects of assigned versus self-selected goals and contingent versus non-contingent gameplay conditions delivered during computer-assisted math computation drill-and-practice sessions. Subjects were 20 high-school students with learning disabilities. Self-selected goals were more effective; no differences existed between…

Houck, Cherry K.; Billingsley, Bonnie S. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 1989
A study compared the writing productivity, syntactic maturity, vocabulary, and mechanics of 48 learning-disabled and 48 normally achieving students in grades 4, 8, and 11. Learning-disabled students' written products were shorter, contained fewer sentences with more words per sentence, included fewer long words, and had more spelling and…

A study compared the reaction time and efficiency of cognitive processing on a speeded classification task, involving 43 children with attention deficit disorder/hyperactivity, 22 children with attention deficit disorder without hyperactivity, and 16 controls, aged 6-13. It was found that the children's diagnoses could not be distinguished on…

A study found that parents of 51 boys (aged 5-13) with attention deficit disorder with hyperactivity perceived their family environment as less supportive and more stressful than control groups, with lower levels of interpersonal relationships, more depression, and higher separation/divorce rates. Differences were found in mothers' and fathers'…

Christopher, James D.; And Others – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 1989
Psychoeducational assessment variables for 119 referred high-school students were subjected to discriminant function analysis. Variables predictive of learning-disability classification were spelling, intelligence quotient, and the interview question, "Do you think going into a special class/program would help you?." (MSE)
