The aim of this study was to examine whether the use of a response-to-intervention (RTI) model to identify specific learning disability (SLD) over-identifies children and youth with population-relative (normative) weaknesses in general cognitive ability (IQs < 90). We compared the overall score on the Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test-Second…

The least restrictive environment (LRE) is the legal right for students with disabilities to be included and educated with their non-disabled peers.

In the current…
