Deshpande, Divya S.; Riccomini, Paul J.; Hughes, Elizabeth M.; Raulston, Tracy J. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2021
While school performance suggests students with learning disabilities require intervention to demonstrate mathematics proficiency, little is known about how they approach problem solving in secondary geometry. Think aloud protocols highlight the higher order thinking skills underlying complex academic tasks. We conducted an exploratory descriptive…

VanUitert, Victoria J.; Kennedy, Michael J.; Romig, John Elwood; Carlisle, Lindsay M. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2020
Science includes a multitude of specialized terms that are not consistently taught using effective practices. Often, students with disabilities rely on ineffective strategies in order to memorize word definitions, which inhibits their science achievement. Using a counter-balanced design, we tested whether having access to multimedia videos that…

Evmenova, Anya S.; Regan, Kelley; Ahn, Soo Y.; Good, Kevin – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2020
Various technology-based interventions exist to support writing for students with learning disabilities (LD). However, it is not enough to simply provide access to technology. How it is implemented by teachers may affect student outcomes. In this study, three special education teachers used a technology-based graphic organizer (TBGO) with embedded…

Schulze, Sarah; Lüke, Timo; Kuhl, Jan – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2020
Interventions to support children with mathematical learning difficulties typically address deficits in domain-specific knowledge. However, not all students benefit from these instructional programs. In this case, some authors suggest an even more intensive instructional program combined with other factors assumed to be relevant for learning.…
