Tuedor, Marian; Franco, Fabia; White, Anthony; Smith, Serengul; Adams, Ray – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2019
Multimedia computer programmes have been found to facilitate learning in children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD). However, the effectiveness of these resources is limited due to poor design or a lack of consideration of the ASD cognitive profile, particularly at the lower functioning end of the spectrum. This article attempts to tackle the…

Klesczewski, Julia; Brandenburg, Janin; Fischbach, Anne; Schuchardt, Kirsten; Grube, Dietmar; Hasselhorn, Marcus; Büttner, Gerhard – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2018
Based on the finding that children with mathematical learning difficulties (MLD) have deficits in working memory (WM), the question arises as to whether these children differ from typical learners only in the level or also in the developmental trajectories of WM functioning. To this end, the WM of 80 children with MLD and 71 typical learners was…

Smogorzewska, Joanna; Szumski, Grzegorz – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2018
This study tested whether and how methods called 'Play Time/Social Time' and 'I Can Problem Solve' contribute to the improvement of social skills and the development of theory of mind (ToM) in children. The participants in the experiment were nearly 200 (N = 196) preschool children with low social functioning, with and without disabilities. The…

Kallman, Davi – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2017
Individuals with disabilities comprise the largest minority group in the world, yet they are the most underrepresented minority group in higher education, the job market and entertainment media such as literature. This population is often underrepresented because of the overlapping physical, attitudinal and policy barriers that prevent them from…

Schimchowitsch, Sarah; Rohmer, Odile – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2016
The present research further extends recent data revealing implicit attitude towards persons with disability, with the aim to explore if meditation practice can reduce automatic mental processes initiating prejudice. Forty adult experienced meditators and 34 meditation-naïve individuals performed an evaluative priming task. None of them presented…

Zhu, Nan – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2015
This study investigated the impact of cognitive strategy instruction (CSI) on mathematical word problem solving of students with mathematics disabilities. A sample of fourth-grade students in a Chinese primary school was divided into a treatment group (75 students) and a comparison group (75 students). The sample consisted of students with…

Damhuis, Carmen M. P.; Segers, Eliane; Verhoeven, Ludo – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2014
We investigated the sustained effects of explicit versus implicit instruction on the breadth and depth of children's vocabularies, while taking their general vocabulary and verbal short-term memory into account. Two experimental groups with 12 and 15 kindergarten children respectively learned two sets of 17 words counterbalanced to be taught first…

Thurston, Allen – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2014
This article presents a critical review of the literature surrounding the potential impact of undiagnosed and untreated vision impairment on reading development in the early years of primary school. Despite pre-school screening programmes, it is still possible for children to enter school with undiagnosed, uncorrected vision impairments. This can…

Leong, Che Kan; Ho, Man Koon – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2012
We trained 36 12-year-old Chinese students with reading disorders in the analysis, synthesis and integration of orthographic constituents of semantic and phonetic "bujians" (radicals); and also their writing (spelling and composing) skills. These target students were compared with 37 age-controls in a pre-test and post-test design on a…

Wolff, Ulrika – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2009
The prevalence of phonological and surface dyslexia subtypes among Swedish university students with dyslexia (n = 40) was examined using both the regression method, developed by Castles and Coltheart, and latent profile analysis. When an academic-level control group was used as a reference group in a regression, eight students with phonological…

Marom, Meyrav; Cohen, Doron; Naon, Denise – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2007
This quasi-experimental study investigated how direct contact between students with and without disabilities impacted disability-related attitudes and specific self-efficacy of study participants. Study participants (N = 170) were students without disabilities who attended general education schools. Students in an experimental group (N = 77)…

Hasselhorn, Marcus; Mahler, Claudia – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2007
In two studies, 10-year-olds from 2 German special schools as well as typically developing children of the same chronological age (CA controls) or the same mental age (MA controls) were compared on several aspects of working memory functions (i.e., size and input quality of the phonological store, speed and automatic activation of the subvocal…

Reynolds, Meree; Wheldall, Kevin – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2007
Reading Recovery is an intensive literacy programme designed for young students who have been identified as being at-risk of reading failure after 1 year of schooling. The intervention was developed and trialled in New Zealand over 20 years ago and is now implemented in a number of education systems. The focus of this article is on recent research…
