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…

Del Tufo, Stephanie N.; Earle, F. Sayako – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
Developmental language disorder (DLD) and developmental dyslexia (DD) are two prevalent subtypes of Specific Learning Disabilities (SLDs; "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders" [5th ed.; DSM-5]). Yet, little information is available regarding the distinct challenges faced by adults with DLD and/or DD in college. The…

Sumner, Emma; Connelly, Vincent – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
Previous work suggests that written text produced by university students with dyslexia is scored lower than that produced by their peers. The present study used a digital writing tablet to examine the writing process and the quality of text written by university students with dyslexia. Revision behavior during and after writing was also…

Nukari, Johanna M.; Poutiainen, Erja T.; Arkkila, Eva P.; Haapanen, Marja-Leena; Lipsanen, Jari O.; Laasonen, Marja R. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
Effectiveness of individual and group-based neuropsychological interventions on cognitive aspects of dyslexia in young adults was evaluated. Dyslexic adults were randomly assigned into individual intervention (n = 40), group intervention (n = 40), or wait-list control group (n = 40). The interventions focused on cognitive strategy learning,…

Oefinger, Lisa M.; Peverly, Stephen T. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
The note- and test-taking skills of typically functioning undergraduates are significantly and positively related to handwriting speed, listening comprehension, background knowledge and sustained attention. This study attempted to replicate these findings with two groups of high school students--those with and without the diagnosis of a learning…

Alamargot, Denis; Morin, Marie-France; Simard-Dupuis, Erika – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
Developmental dyslexia is defined as a specific reading disorder but is also thought to be underpinned by a deficit in motor skills that may well affect handwriting performance. However, the results of studies addressing this issue are not consistent. The present study was, therefore, designed to better understand the functioning of handwriting in…

Wissinger, Daniel R.; De La Paz, Susan – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
This article reports the results from a study investigating the effects of a discipline-specific reading and writing intervention (I3C/PROVE IT!) with fourth and fifth graders. Participants included 237 students with writing difficulties (WD) from an initial pool of 608 upper elementary school students in a larger study. Teachers and students were…

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…
