Mason, Linda H.; Meadan-Kaplansky, Hedda; Hedin, Laura; Taft, Raol – Exceptionality, 2013
Students who struggle with learning may not have the metacognition needed to support the multiple processes required to understand what is read in informational text. Instruction for these students, therefore, should include methodologies that promote self-regulation of critical thinking processes. Fifty-eight low-achieving students were provided…

Specht, Jacqueline A.; King, Gillian A.; Servais, Michelle; Kertoy, Marilyn; Spencer, Terry – Exceptionality Education International, 2011
Students who are more engaged in school have higher academic achievement, lower dropout rates, and increased involvement in activities during early adulthood. Unfortunately, children with disabilities participate less than children without disabilities, thus increasing their risk for depression and anxiety. This study investigated the lack of…

Mattatall, Chris – Exceptionality Education International, 2011
Knowing what students should be able to accomplish academically is the first step in knowing how to write accurate Individual Education Plan (IEP) goals. By giving students short Curriculum-Based Measurements (CBM) in areas such as reading, writing, and mathematics, teachers are able to determine current level of performance, or baseline. Teachers…
