Hord, Casey; Ladrigan, Emily; Saldanha, Rene L. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2020
The researchers conducted a microanalysis of two purposefully sampled sessions of a tutor working with a student with a learning disability (LD) engaging with multi-step equations with and without fractions. During the tutoring sessions, the student experienced quick, independent success on equations without fractions, but struggled considerably…

Lei, Qingli; Xin, Yan Ping; Morita-Mullaney, Trish; Tzur, Ron – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2020
As today's classrooms become more and more diverse, there is a growing need to explore the intersection between English Learners (ELs) and students with learning disabilities (LD) in the content-specific instruction of mathematics problem solving. The aim of this study was to determine which types of instructional scaffolds may be used by math…

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…

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…

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…

Duchaine, Ellen L.; Jolivette, Kristine; Fredrick, Laura D.; Alberto, Paul A. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2018
Students with academic, social, and emotional disabilities often demonstrate challenging behaviors and struggle to remain focused on the lesson, learn less that their peers, resulting in lower academic achievement. Research has demonstrated that the more actively engaged students are in the lesson, the more they learn, and therefore the more…

Marita, Samantha; Hord, Casey; Gamel, Zachary – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2018
Students with learning disabilities identify teachers' understanding of them as learners as crucial for their empowerment and success in school. This study provides insight into how the analysis of students' academic and social situational tendencies can provide teachers with better understanding of their students' educational experiences and lead…

Zhang, Dake – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2017
We examined the effectiveness of (a) a working memory (WM) training program and (b) a combination program involving both WM training and direct instruction for students with geometry difficulties (GD). Four students with GD participated. A multiple-baseline design across participants was employed. During the Phase 1, students received six sessions…

Myers, Jonté A.; Wang, Jun; Brownell, Mary T.; Gagnon, Joseph Calvin – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2015
The purpose of our literature review was to extend and update Maccini, Mulcahy, and Wilson's (2007) review of the literature on mathematics interventions for secondary students with learning disabilities (LD). An extensive search of the research literature netted 15 research studies that focused on mathematics interventions for secondary students…

Weisenburgh-Snyder, Amy B.; Malmquist, Susan K.; Robbins, Joanne K.; Lipshin, Alison M. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2015
In the generative classroom, teachers provide well-designed learning environments that result in the combination, recombination, and reorganization of repertoires such that new untaught repertoires are likely to occur. One component that can contribute to such generativity is Precision Teaching (PT), a frequency building instructional…

Colomer, Carla; Re, Anna M.; Miranda, Ana; Lucangeli, Daniela – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2013
The aim of this study was to investigate the specific numerical and calculation abilities of 28 children with ADHD without comorbid mathematical learning disabilities (LD), ranging from the 1st to the 5th grade of primary school, and to examine the stability or the development of the arithmetic profile. Our results showed that a high percentage of…

Desoete, Annemie; Stock, Pieter – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2013
Counting abilities have been described as determinative precursors for a good development of later mathematical abilities. However, an important part of variance in mathematical achievement has also been associated with differences between instruction methods given in schools. In this study counting and instruction as predictors for mathematical…

Lewis, Katherine E. – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2010
When solving basic number fact problems (e.g., 4x5=20), students with mathematical learning disabilities (MLDs) make qualitatively different kinds of errors than both typically achieving and low-achieving students. This study explores the origin of these qualitative differences through a detailed analysis of one student with an MLD. Data were…
