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,…

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…

Smith, Stephen W.; Poling, Daniel V.; Worth, Megan R. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2018
School professionals may provide behavioral support for students using a tiered framework of intervention. Students who display problem behaviors and sustained resistance to interventions within these tiers may require special education services under the category of emotional and behavioral disorders. By the time students receive special…

Lemons, Christopher J.; Vaughn, Sharon; Wexler, Jade; Kearns, Devin M.; Sinclair, Anne C. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2018
In "Endrew F. v Douglas County School District RE-1," the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the requirement that schools provide special education services designed to confer educational benefit that is more than de minimis. "Endrew" offers an opportunity for the special education community to consider whether students with learning…

Jung, Pyung-Gang; McMaster, Kristen L.; Kunkel, Amy K.; Shin, Jaehyun; Stecker, Pamela M. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2018
We examined the mean effect of teachers' use of data-based individualization (DBI) on the performance of students with intensive learning needs across academic areas and factors influencing the effects of DBI on student achievement. A total of 57 effect sizes from 14 studies were categorized into two comparisons: DBI Only (comparisons between DBI…
