Freeman-Green, Shaqwana; Driver, Melissa K.; Wang, Peishi; Kamuru, Jessica; Jackson, Dia – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2021
Culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students comprise a substantial population of students with learning disabilities, and are historically disproportionately represented in special education. To effectively teach CLD students with learning disabilities, teachers should integrate evidence-based practices and culturally sustaining pedagogy…

Vaknin-Nusbaum, Vered – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2021
The effectiveness of a morphological awareness (MA) intervention program on reading fluency and accuracy performance was examined in 40 students with reading disabilities in fourth to sixth grade, ranging in age from nine to 12 years old (M = 10.51, SD = 0.89). The study used an experimental pre-post design consisting of a morphological…

Yeari, Menahem; Lavie, Anat – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2021
The present study employed a think-aloud method to explore the origin of centrality deficit (i.e., poor recall of central ideas) in individuals with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Moreover, utilizing the diverse think-aloud responses, we examined the overall quality of text processing employed by individuals with ADHD during…

Sanetti, Lisa M. H.; Cook, Bryan G.; Cook, Lysandra – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2021
Treatment fidelity refers to the extent to which an intervention is implemented as planned. If researchers do not assess and report treatment fidelity, or if treatment fidelity is shown to be low, findings from intervention studies are difficult to interpret, because the intervention may not have been implemented as planned. In this article, our…

Arizmendi, Genesis D.; Li, Jui-Teng; Van Horn, M. Lee; Petcu, Stefania D.; Swanson, H. Lee – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2021
This meta-analysis synthesized research on math performance outcomes for English learners (EL) as a function of language-focused (math vocabulary) interventions. We included group and single-subject design studies with children from kindergarten to 8th grade (3,766 students for group, 30 for single-subject). Group studies yielded a mean Hedges' g…

Yakut, Ayse Dilsad – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2021
Students with specific learning disabilities (SLD) are taught by general education teachers who may not respond positively to the inclusion of these students in their classrooms. Teachers' self-efficacy is an important construct which is related to teachers' teaching and their willingness to include students with disabilities into their…

Nelson, Gena; Kiss, Allyson J. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2021
There is an emerging research base exploring the relation between mathematics vocabulary and achievement; therefore, we conducted a pilot study of a mathematics vocabulary intervention for first-grade students with mathematics difficulty (MD). At posttest, the vocabulary intervention group scored significantly higher than the active control on…

Peltier, Corey; Morano, Stephanie; Shin, Mikyung; Stevenson, Nathan; McKenna, John W. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2021
Single-case research designs (SCRDs) are rigorous methods used to investigate the effects of interventions on socially important outcomes. A hallmark of SCRDs is repeated measurement of observable behavior presented in time-series graphs. The construction of time-series graphs can inflate Type I or Type II errors made via visual analysis. In the…

McGahee, Dwannal W.; King-Sears, Margaret E.; Evmenova, Anya S. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2021
Self-advocacy is an important skill, especially as students transition from high school to postsecondary settings. In this study, five high-school students with specific learning disabilities (SLD) were taught to use a self-advocacy intervention to learn to request academic accommodations. A multiple-baseline across participants design was used to…

Myers, Jonté A.; Brownell, Mary T.; Griffin, Cynthia C.; Hughes, Elizabeth M.; Witzel, Bradley S.; Gage, Nicolas A.; Peyton, David; Acosta, Kelly; Wang, Jun – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2021
We quantitatively synthesized findings of quasi-experimental and randomized control studies of interventions designed to improve the mathematics achievement of secondary school students with mathematics difficulties (MD). We identified 45 studies (49 interventions) published between 1978 and 2020 and classified interventions into five categories:…

Rodgers, Wendy J.; Weiss, Margaret P.; Ismail, Hazim Aal – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2021
Specially designed instruction (SDI) is at the heart of special education. The broad legal definition of SDI allows special educators to customize it for students, but could lead to role ambiguity, particularly in inclusive classes where most students with learning disabilities receive services. To examine interpretations of SDI, we conducted a…

Vaknin-Nusbaum, Vered; Nevo, Einat – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2021
We examined the relationships of two aspects of reading motivation with reading fluency performance in 79 third- to sixth-grade Hebrew-speaking students with reading disabilities. Reading fluency tests were administered, in addition to a reading motivation questionnaire (MRP-R), all of which examined students' self-concept as readers, as well as…

Thomas, Elizabeth R.; Conoyer, Sarah J.; Lembke, Erica S. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2020
The purpose of this study was to examine the role descriptive factors played in the perceptions of response to intervention (RTI) implementation success, challenges, and self-efficacy in a large Midwestern school district. District staff were surveyed as part of an evaluation of RTI implementation. Factors analyzed included teacher descriptive…

Dennis, Minyi Shih; Gratton-Fisher, Emma – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2020
Secondary students with persistent mathematics difficulties need the most intensive intervention in order to improve their mathematics outcomes. One approach to intensifying and individualizing intervention is through data-based individualization (DBI). The present study used a single-subject, multiple-baseline-across-participants,…

Pasqualotto, Angela; Venuti, Paola – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2020
In this research, we examined the responsiveness to treatment in 49 Italian children with Dyslexia. In part A, we compare the efficacy of a phonological-based treatment (Ph-T) with a cognitive training of executive functions (CT). In part B, we investigate whether a sequential treatment (CT+Ph-T) has a larger remedial effect compared to the pure…
