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…

Abed, Mohaned G.; Shackelford, Todd K. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2020
Disability laws in Saudi Arabia mandate that higher education institutions provide support for special needs learners in order to ensure educational opportunities equivalent to opportunities for their nondisabled peers. These institutions experience challenges, however, in providing the necessary support to undergraduate and postgraduate students…

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…

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…

Sprick, Jessica T.; Bouck, Emily C.; Berg, Tricia R.; Coughlin, Cristy – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2020
According to Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, lack of appropriate instruction is a possible exclusionary factor that must be considered during Specific Learning Disability (SLD) identification. Student attendance is a major predictor of long-term academic success or failure and may relate to whether a student had access to appropriate…

Therrien, William J.; Cook, Bryan G.; Cook, Lysandra – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2020
Meta-analysis is one approach for synthesizing research studies to identify generally effective instructional practices for students with learning disabilities (LD). In this article, we define core components of meta-analytic literature reviews, discuss how to interpret findings from meta-analyses, and provide guidelines for how research consumers…

Jordan, Rebecca L. P.; Fernandez, Edmund P.; Costa, Lara-Jeane C.; Hooper, Stephen R. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2020
Students with specific learning disabilities (SLDs) are more likely to exhibit internalizing and externalizing behaviors than typically developing peers. Virtually none of the literature, however, reports on the behaviors of students at-risk for writing disabilities (AR-WD). We compared the behaviors of writers who are AR-WD and typically…

Donegan, Rachel E.; Wanzek, Jeanne; Al Otaiba, Stephanie – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2020
Students with disabilities who display severe reading difficulties may require intensive interventions in order to make progress. The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of a multicomponent reading intervention implemented at two different intensities, in two separate randomized control trials, for a subset of fourth-grade students who…

Rosenberg-Adler, Tali; Weintraub, Naomi – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2020
Word processing is often considered an alternative writing mode or test accommodation for students with specific learning disorders who have handwriting difficulties (HD). Therefore, it is important for researchers and educators to understand the difficulties these students may encounter while using this technology. We examined the frequency of…

Abed, Mohaned G.; Shackelford, Todd K. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2020
Worldwide, 3.0-7.0 percent of school-aged children meet criteria for a diagnosis of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). In Saudi Arabia, ADHD appears to be more prevalent than the worldwide average, with estimates of 12.6-16.7 percent. Unfortunately, there is a relative dearth of research addressing ADHD and related training programs…

Lee, Jihyun; Bryant, Diane Pedrotty; Ok, Min Wook; Shin, Mikyung – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2020
Improving the algebraic concepts and skills of secondary school students with learning disabilities is critical for their success in college and in the job market. This research reviewed 12 studies to examine interventions for students with learning disabilities in relation to algebraic notions and competencies. The results indicate that in regard…
