Fuchs, Douglas; Hendricks, Emma; Walsh, Meagan E.; Fuchs, Lynn S.; Gilbert, Jennifer K.; Zhang Tracy, Wen; Patton, Samuel, III; Davis-Perkins, Nicole; Kim, Wooliya; Elleman, Amy M.; Peng, Peng – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2018
We conducted a 14-week experimental study of 2 versions of a relatively comprehensive RC intervention that involved 50 classroom teachers, 15 tutors, and 116 children drawn in equal proportions from grades 3 and 5 in 13 schools in a large urban school district. Students were randomly assigned in equal numbers to the two tutoring conditions and a…

Kim, Woori; Ok, Min Wook; Yoo, Yongseok – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2018
This study employed group randomized trials to investigate the effects of self- and peer-monitoring on the academic vocabulary and content knowledge of students with learning disabilities and low achieving students in social studies. Fourth grade students were randomly assigned to either treatment or control groups on a class level. Results…

Baker, Doris Luft; Richards-Tutor, Catherine; Sparks, Anthony; Canges, Rebecca – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2018
We review published single subject design (SSD) studies that examine the effects of interventions for English learners at-risk or with learning disabilities. Results of our literature search yielded 10 studies, five in reading, one in reading and behavior, and four in mathematics that met our inclusion criteria. Seven studies targeted…

Kestel, Eugénie; Forgasz, Helen – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2018
The effectiveness of an individual, conceptual instruction-based tuition program delivered by personal videoconferencing (PVC), compared to face-to-face (FtF) delivery for 30 upper primary and middle school students with mathematical learning difficulties (MLD), is described in this article. The experimental intervention targeted number sense,…

Berkeley, Sheri; Larsen, Anna – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2018
Thirty years of intervention research on the effects of reading comprehension strategies for students with learning disabilities was reviewed in this quantitative synthesis. Specifically, researchers targeted studies that contained self-regulated learning components. A systematic search yielded 18 studies from nine research journals that met…

Satsangi, Rajiv; Hammer, Rachel; Evmenova, Anya S. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2018
Students with learning disabilities often struggle with the academic demands presented in secondary mathematics curricula. To combat these students' struggles, researchers have studied various pedagogical practices and classroom technologies for teaching standards covered in subjects such as algebra and geometry. However, as the role of computer-…

Cook, Bryan G.; Cook, Lysandra; Therrien, William J. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2018
Effect sizes are powerful tools for evaluating the practical importance of study findings that should be considered in the context of study characteristics such as participants, dependent variables, and comparison condition. In this article, we discuss how group-difference effect sizes are used to gauge the practical importance of group…

Cook, Bryan G.; Cook, Lysandra – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2017
Special educators are urged to use research findings to inform their instruction in order to improve student outcomes. However, it can be difficult to tell whether and how research findings apply to one's own students. In this article, we discuss how special educators can consider the samples and the sampling methods in studies to examine the…

King-Sears, Margaret E.; Evmenova, Anya S.; Johnson, Todd M. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2017
High school students with and without learning disabilities in two chemistry classes accessed technologically-enhanced worksheets, called Pencasts, when completing homework assignments. In this action research study, feedback from students was gathered via questionnaires and interviews. Students most frequently used Pencasts to figure out how to…

Lembke, Erica S.; Allen, Abigail; Cohen, Daniel; Hubbuch, Chris; Landon, Dorothy; Bess, Joy; Bruns, Heather – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2017
Two hundred and two (n = 202) sixth-grade students in social studies were administered a weekly vocabulary-matching curriculum-based measure (CBM) for 35 weeks. Students were also administered the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI), along with the annual state high-stakes test in Communication Arts. CBM scores were analyzed with respect to…

Hughes, Charles A.; Morris, Jared R.; Therrien, William J.; Benson, Sarah K. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2017
Over the past 20-plus years, the instructional approach referred to as "explicit instruction" has been increasingly mentioned as an instructional method in the learning disabilities literature. Explicit instruction is not a unitary intervention, but can be a combination of over a dozen teaching behaviors or components used to design and…
