Lewis, Katherine E.; Sweeney, Gwendolyn; Thompson, Grace M.; Adler, Rebecca M.; Alhamad, Kawla – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2022
Algebra is a gatekeeper. For the 6% of students with dyscalculia (i.e., mathematical learning disabilities), an inability to pass algebra may significantly limit academic and career opportunities. Unfortunately, prior research on dyscalculia has focused almost exclusively on elementary-aged students' deficits in speed and accuracy in arithmetic…

Lambert, Rachel; Nguyen, Tomy; Mendoza, Monica; McNiff, Avery – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2022
Understanding increased achievement as a dynamic relationship between student engagement and mathematical understanding, we designed an intervention to address both factors. Our intervention was the instructional routine number strings, led by an undergraduate tutor. In this paper, we provide a case study of the development of a fourth-grade…

Buncher, Amanda; Ward, Rashad; Kinkade, Anela; Pflug, Brandon – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2022
People with disabilities are employed at a rate much lower than people without disabilities (Erickson et al., 2022). People with disabilities can be excellent employees who bring a wide range of skills and abilities to their work. Businesses may experience increased productivity and positive publicity as benefits to hiring people with disabilities…

Barwasser, Anne; Lenz, Bastian; Grünke, Matthias – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2021
Students with learning and behavioral problems often face enormous barriers to successful school performance. When the language of instruction is not the students' first language and they are already in secondary school, this is compounded by additional challenges, especially with regard to vocabulary and reading -- subjects that are fundamental…

Grünke, Matthias; Hord, Casey; Macdonald, Stephen J. – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2021
Case reports make up a significant part of the medical literature by documenting unique clinical scenarios or exemplary treatment practices from which real-life lessons can be learned. But while such studies play an essential role in medical research, they rarely appear in special education journals. Competently assessing and instructing children,…

Bundock, Kaitlin; Callan, Gregory L.; Longhurst, David; Rolf, Kristen R.; Benney, Chandler M.; McClain, Maryellen Brunson – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2021
Research on mathematics interventions for college students with learning disabilities (LD) is sparse, yet mathematics is critical for post-secondary success. Prior research indicates that many effective strategies for teaching mathematics to secondary students with LD (e.g., manipulatives and cognitive strategies) can also improve the mathematics…

Hord, Casey; Hoyng, Clayton – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2021
In this paper, we make a case for the importance of teaching secondary school level algebra to students with learning disabilities (LD). Furthermore, we illustrate how they struggle and present best-practices on how they are best supported. We demonstrate effective ways of how teachers can show students with LD how to solve challenging algebra…

Karnes, Jennifer; Barwasser, Anne; Grünke, Matthias – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2021
There is a significant need for easy-to-implement interventions in the early grades, especially in mathematics, as many children have difficulties in their first years of school with automated basic math facts recall and, therefore, fall behind. Automation of single-digit multiplication tasks represents an important developmental step, as it can…

Angode, Claudia; Ressa, Theodoto W. – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2021
Many countries suspended physical learning due to COVID-19 and switched to virtual learning to mitigate the spread of the pandemic. Grounded on social learning theory, this quantitative study examined the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the education of students with special needs in Kenya. Statistical analysis revealed negative consequences of…

Colley, Kabba E.; Lassman, Kelley A. – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2021
Implicit in all US science education reform efforts in the past, is equal access and opportunity to learn science for all students regardless of their background and status. However, most science teacher preparation programs (with some exceptions, i.e., those that offer dual endorsement/certification), do not have the capacity or resources to…
