Nelson, Gena; Hughes Pfannenstiel, Kathleen; Zumeta Edmonds, Rebecca – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2020
Within a multitiered system of support (MTSS), students who struggle to learn mathematics often receive core instruction and supplemental intervention in different settings, with different teachers and different sets of curriculum materials, all of which can result in poor alignment. This curriculum crosswalk describes how three sets of materials…

Cook, Bryan G.; Collins, Lauren W.; Cook, Sara Cothren; Cook, Lysandra – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2020
Evidence-based reviews are a type of systematic literature review used to identify evidence-based practices. When conducting an evidence-based review, researchers apply predetermined standards to identify evidence-based practices--practices that have been shown to reliably improve an outcome for a population of learners, according to evidence from…

McKevett, Nicole M.; Kromminga, Kourtney R.; Ruedy, Amelia; Roesslein, Rachel; Running, Kristin; Codding, Robin S. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2020
National assessments suggest that many students do not display proficiency with fractions. Considering that time and materials are precious resources, many educators are looking to use technology to provide supplemental instruction with low demand on the instructor. The current study utilized a multiple-baseline design to examine the effects of…

Goegan, Lauren D.; Daniels, Lia M. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2020
Students with learning disabilities (LD) are attending postsecondary education more than ever, but are also less likely to complete their education compared to non-LD peers. Using the Inputs-Environment-Outcomes model of Astin, we examined students with LD and non-LD peers during their first year of postsecondary studies. Using structural equation…

Satsangi, Rajiv; Hammer, Rachel; Hogan, Christina D. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2019
As classrooms begin to adopt a greater number of digital technologies such as computers and tablets, it is important for educators to understand how effective such tools can be in aiding in the delivery of instruction to students who struggle in mathematics, such as those identified with a learning disability in mathematics. One digital-based…

Calhoon, Mary Beth; Berkeley, Sheri; Scanlon, David – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2019
How schools fulfill Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) requirements has evolved. Decades of general and special education reforms have led to dramatic increases in expectations for students in special education to be included in the general education classroom and curriculum and to achieve to the same high standards as their general…

Datchuk, Shawn M.; Rodgers, Derek B. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2019
Good sentence construction, the act of writing multiple words into sentence types that make semantic and syntactic sense, is needed for clear and meaningful written expression. The present study investigated the effects of a multi-component writing intervention, sentence instruction and frequency building to a performance criterion, on the simple…

Hwang, Jiwon; Riccomini, Paul J.; Hwang, Seok Yoon; Morano, Stephanie – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2019
Developing an understanding of fractions is critical and is an educational focus, as reflected in national standards and principles. This study conducted a quantitative synthesis of 22 experimental studies to investigate the overall efficacy of previously conducted fraction interventions compared to standard instruction. Instruction type and…

Hoover, John J.; Erickson, Jennifer R.; Patton, James R.; Sacco, Donna M.; Tran, Le M. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2019
Effective education of English learners (ELs) with learning disabilities requires special educators to deliver culturally/linguistically responsive instruction within the context of special services, embracing the interaction between exceptionality and diversity. A critical concept is the notion that cultural and linguistic features are mandated…

Nese, Joseph F. T.; Farley, Dan; Anderson, Daniel – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2019
We used data from the 2014-2015 easyCBM assessment system to explore the applied reading intervention characteristics in a sample of 3,074 Grade 1 students (and 5,145 interventions) in school districts applying a multitiered systems of support (MTSS) framework. We describe the number of interventions, number of assessments, the intervention start…

Leonard, Kaitlin M.; Coyne, Michael D.; Oldham, Ashley C.; Burns, Darci; Gillis, Margie B. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2019
Multi-tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) frameworks are designed to directly support students with, and at risk for, disabilities by providing timely, aligned, and coordinated supports, with the goal of preventing or ameliorating the effects of early risk. Yet developing and implementing MTSS in beginning reading is a complex process. Many schools…

Park, Yujeong; Kiely, Mary Theresa; Brownell, Mary T.; Benedict, Amber – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2019
The purpose of this study was to explore the relationships among (1) special education teachers' knowledge for teaching reading fluency, (2) the specific instructional practices they used in fluency instruction, and (3) gains of students with specific learning disabilities (SLD) on a performance measure of oral reading fluency (ORF). Analyses…

Swanson, H. Lee; Kong, Jennifer E.; Moran, Amber S.; Orosco, Michael J. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2019
This randomized control treatment study investigated the role of generative paraphrasing interventions on word problem-solving (WPS) accuracy in English language learners (ELL) who were at risk for math difficulties (MD). One hundred and forty-two third-grade monolingual and English language learners were randomly assigned to either an untreated…

Hebert, Michael A.; Bohaty, Janet; Roehling, Julia; Powell, Sarah R. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2019
High-stakes mathematics assessments require students to write about mathematics, although research suggests students exhibit limited proficiency on such assessments. Students with LD may have difficulties with writing, mathematics, or both. Researchers employed an intervention for teaching students how to organize mathematics writing (MW).…
