Herbert, Katherine E. D.; Massey-Garrison, Angela; Geva, Esther – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
This longitudinal study examined story-writing development of students from Grade 4 to Grade 6, comparing the developmental trajectories of English as a first language (EL1s; n = 43) and English learners (ELs; n = 108) in general, and in groups of EL1s and ELs with typically developing and poor reader profiles. In relation to their EL1 or EL…

Woods, Adrienne D.; Ahmed, Sammy F.; Katz, Benjamin D.; Morrison, Frederick J. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
We explored whether and how cognitive measures of executive function (EF) can be used to help classify academic performance in Kindergarten and first grade using nonparametric cluster analysis. We found that EF measures were useful in classifying low-reading performance in both grades, but mathematics performance could be grouped into low,…

Chung, Kevin Kien Hoa; Lam, Chun Bun – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
The present study investigated the co-occurrence of word reading and spelling difficulties for Chinese first language (L1) and English second language (L2) and the role of morphological awareness in word reading and spelling ability across two languages. A total of 110 Hong Kong Chinese-speaking students in Grade 7, including 55 adolescents with…

Sarid, Miriam; Meltzer, Yael; Raveh, Michal – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
Postsecondary entrance examination scores are generally low predictors of college achievement (grade point average [GPA]) for students with learning disabilities (LD). The difficulties with meeting academic requirements have raised the awareness of the needs of students with LD for support services. The present study examined the adequacy of…

Afonso, Olivia; Suárez-Coalla, Paz; Cuetos, Fernando – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
This study investigated which components of the writing production process are impaired in Spanish children with developmental dyslexia (DD) aged 8 to 12 years. Children with and without dyslexia (n = 60) were assessed in their use of the lexical and the sublexical routes of spelling as well as the orthographic working memory system by…

Arfé, Barbara; Corato, Francesca; Pizzocaro, Eleonora; Merella, Anne – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
Handwriting and spelling problems are often associated in dyslexia. However, the nature of their association is still unclear, and most of the existing research in this area is on deep orthographies (mainly English). The extent to which findings are applicable across languages is uncertain. This article examines the effects of script…

Prunty, Mellissa; Barnett, Anna L. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
Handwriting difficulties are frequently mentioned in descriptions of developmental coordination disorder (DCD). Recent studies have shown that children with DCD pause more and produce less text than typically developing (TD) peers. This temporal dysfluency indicates a lack of automaticity in handwriting production. One possible contributing factor…

Gutiérrez, Nuria; Jiménez, Juan E.; de León, Sara C.; Seoane, Rocío C. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
Early identification of learning difficulties is a critical component of the Response to Intervention (RtI) model. In kindergarten, the screening of foundational reading skills can provide a data-based guideline for identifying students requiring a more intensive response-based intervention before starting elementary school. This study examines…

Yeung, Susanna Siu-sze; Savage, Robert – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
Reading interventions developed to teach grapheme-phoneme correspondences (GPCs) were evaluated among L2 at-risk readers. In the direct mapping of grapheme (DMG) condition, children's attention was explicitly drawn to the application of a graphemes taught on that day to shared reading of words in authentic text. In the control condition there was…

Bryant, Brian R.; Seay, Penny Crews – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
Assistive technology (AT) was recognized by Congress as a viable need for people with disabilities when it passed the Tech Act in 1988. The legislation, which was reauthorized in 1994, has resulted in numerous programs and services that have helped people with disabilities access and use AT devices. The Tech Act's implications for people with…

Child, Amanda E.; Cirino, Paul T.; Fletcher, Jack M.; Willcutt, Erik G.; Fuchs, Lynn S. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2019
Disorders of reading, math, and attention frequently co-occur in children. However, it is not yet clear which cognitive factors contribute to comorbidities among multiple disorders and which uniquely relate to one, especially because they have rarely been studied as a triad. Thus, the present study considers how reading, math, and attention relate…

Spanoudis, George C.; Papadopoulos, Timothy C.; Spyrou, Spyroula – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2019
Specific language impairment (SLI) and reading disability (RD) are familial, moderately heritable comorbid developmental disorders. The key deficit of SLI is oral language, whereas children with RD exhibit impairment in learning to read. The present study examines the possible co-occurrence of RD and SLI and the nature of this co-occurrence at a…

Vaughn, Sharon; Roberts, Garrett J.; Miciak, Jeremy; Taylor, Pat; Fletcher, Jack M. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2019
We examine the efficacy of an intervention to improve word reading and reading comprehension in fourth- and fifth-grade students with significant reading problems. Using a randomized control trial design, we compare the fourth- and fifth-grade reading outcomes of students with severe reading difficulties who were provided a researcher-developed…

Sideridis, Georgios D.; Simos, Panagiotis; Mouzaki, Angeliki; Stamovlasis, Dimitrios; Georgiou, George K. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2019
The purpose of the present study was to explain the moderating role of rapid automatized naming (RAN) in word reading with a cusp catastrophe model. We hypothesized that increases in RAN performance speed beyond a critical point would be associated with the disruption in word reading, consistent with a "generic shutdown" hypothesis.…

Aro, Tuija; Eklund, Kenneth; Eloranta, Anna-Kaija; Närhi, Vesa; Korhonen, Elisa; Ahonen, Timo – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2019
We studied the impact of diverse subtypes of learning disabilities (LD) on adult-age mental health, education, and employment by comparing the LD group (n = 430) with a matched control group without a known history of LD (n = 2,149). The clinical archived data were merged with lifelong register data on sickness allowances/disability pensions…
