Schindler, Maike; Bader, Eveline; Lilienthal, Achim J.; Schindler, Florian; Schabmann, Alfred – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019
Quantity recognition in whole number representations is a fundamental skill children need to acquire in their mathematical development. Despite the observed correlation to mathematics achievement, however, the ability to recognize quantities in structured whole number representations has not been studied extensively. In this article, we…

Hughes, Elizabeth M. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019
Students with mathematics learning disabilities (MLD) often require more intensive intervention in addition to quality core mathematics instruction. This research evaluates the effects of a point of view video modeling (POVM) intervention including virtual demonstrating of concrete mathematics manipulatives to teach simplifying fractions. Three…

Walsh, Jennifer B.; Hord, Casey – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019
In this exploratory case study, the researchers conducted a qualitative analysis of six teaching sessions to describe the use of gestures and diagrams by a teacher and her students with learning disabilities when engaging in secondary level algebra (e.g., Algebra I & II content). The teacher and her students used gestures, such as pointing and…

Leko, Melinda M.; Alzahrani, Turkey; Handy, Tamara – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019
This study presents findings from a survey of secondary special education teachers who teach reading to students with learning disabilities (LD). Respondents were 392 special education teachers from a large Midwestern State who completed an online or paper survey. Results indicate predominant foci of secondary special education teachers' reading…

Agrawal, Jugnu; Barrio, Brenda L.; Kressler, Benikia; Hsiao, Yun-Ju; Shankland, Rebecca K. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019
Recently, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) reported that although countries around the world must ensure that students with disabilities receive free, inclusive, and appropriate education, students with disabilities are less likely to complete primary or secondary school in many countries. Though this…

Götze, Daniela – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019
In the last decades, many research projects have indicated that, especially for children with mathematical difficulties, procedural training programs seem to be very helpful in promoting learning of multiplicative routines such as the times table. However, there is less knowledge about whether and how a conceptual understanding of multiplication…

Hughes, Elizabeth M.; Lee, Joo-Young; Cook, Michelle J.; Riccomini, Paul J. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019
Content writing contributes to students' positive learning and outcomes. Mathematical-content writing has been shown to positively support students' mathematical reasoning, but it is challenging for many students with and without learning disabilities. This study explores proof-of-concept evaluation to extend self-regulated strategy development,…

Hwang, Jiwon; Riccomini, Paul J.; Morano, Stephanie – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019
Algebra problem solving is one of the most difficult areas in the mathematics curriculum for secondary students with learning disabilities (LD) due to the higher-order reasoning demands and strategic thinking required. The purpose of this review is to examine how effective algebra problem-solving interventions conceptualize the cognitive processes…

Lawrence, Breanna C.; Harrison, Gina L.; Milford, Todd M. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019
There is a notable overlap and co-occurrence of mental health and learning challenges in adolescence. Existing research highlights associations between learning disabilities and mental health problems; however, limited research explores additional variables, such as familial influences. Using a developmental relational systems framework, this…

Viesel-Nordmeyer, Nurit; Schurig, Michael; Bos, Wilfried; Ritterfeld, Ute – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2019
Based on longitudinal data (n = 338) from the German National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) competence development (mathematics and language) of three groups with different mathematical preconditions (+/- 1 SD) were compared between age 4 to 10. Groups were composed by first measurement of mathematical achievement in pre-school age (5/6 years).…

Opitz, Elisabeth Moser; Grob, Urs; Wittich, Claudia; Häsel-Weide, Uta; Nührenbörger, Marcus – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2018
Fostering peer interaction and shared learning is an important aim of inclusive instruction. However, it has not been established whether it is possible to offer explicit and intensive support for low achievers in inclusive settings. This longitudinal study examined whether a structured program that includes cooperative learning fosters…

Stegemann, Kim Calder; Jaciw, Andrew P. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2018
Educational inclusion of children with special learning needs is a philosophy and movement with an international presence. Though Canada is a leader in educational inclusion, many would claim that our public educational systems have not yet fully realized the dream of inclusive education. As other countries have noted, making full-fledged changes…

Röhm, Alexander; Schnöring, Annika; Hastall, Matthias R. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2018
Institutional and individual stigmatization are still major barriers for children with disabilities to access education. Teacher attitudes towards inclusive education play a crucial role in this regard, and are shaped by single-case descriptions from mass media or other sources. Building on exemplification theory and priming, two experiments with…
