Doabler, Christian T.; Clarke, Ben; Kosty, Derek; Fien, Hank; Smolkowski, Keith; Liu, Meijia; Baker, Scott K. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2021
Instructional interactions that occur between teachers and students around foundational mathematics topics are critical for supporting mathematical proficiency among students with mathematics learning disabilities (MLD). This study investigated whether the initial mathematics skill of 880 kindergarten students at risk of MLD predicted the quantity…

Bundock, Kaitlin; Hawken, Leanne S.; Kiuhara, Sharlene A.; O'Keeffe, Breda V.; O'Neill, Robert E.; Cummings, Margarita B. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2021
Implementing an integrated sequence of concrete-representational-abstract depictions of mathematics concepts (CRA-I) can improve the mathematics achievement of students with disabilities, and explicit instructional strategies involving problem-solving heuristics and student verbalizations can help facilitate students' conceptual understanding of…

Chen, Jinsong; Li, Liangfang; Zhang, Dake – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2021
This study analyzed the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study 2011 data on fourth-grade U.S. students' mathematics performance to answer four research questions: (a) How did U.S. students' geometry performance compare with their performance on the other mathematics subscales? (b) What were the patterns of student achievement among…

Liu, Meijia; Bryant, Diane Pedrotty; Kiru, Elly; Nozari, Maryam – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2021
The purpose of this study was to examine geometry interventions for students with learning disabilities. We synthesized nine intervention studies by focusing on the geometry concepts and skills taught to students with learning disabilities, intervention types used, instructional components embedded, and the methodological rigor of the studies.…

Cummings, Kelli D.; Smolkowski, Keith; Baker, Doris Luft – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2021
Universal screening is a critical component of school-based prevention systems. Screening data enable educators to target students for supplemental intervention, align resources to meet needs, and identify students who may be at risk for learning disabilities. One major requirement of the screening process is that all students are included to gain…

Choo, Sam; Park, Sunhi; Nelson, Nancy J. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2021
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education initiatives have placed pressure on teachers to bring technology tools into classroom, including three-dimensional (3D) printing. Yet, little research has examined what specific math skills are required for 3D printing technology. This article describes a follow-up analysis of…

Lin, Xin; Peng, Peng; Luo, Hongjing – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2021
The purpose of the study was to compare the deficit profiles of two important types of mathematics difficulties. Three cognitive measures (working memory, processing speed, and reasoning), two mathematics measures (numerical facts retrieval and mathematics vocabulary), and reading comprehension were assessed among 237 Chinese fourth-grade…

de León, Sara C.; Jiménez, Juan E.; García, Eduardo; Gutiérrez, Nuria; Gil, Verónica – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2021
The main purpose of this study was to validate the curriculum-based measure "Indicadores de Progreso de Aprendizaje en Matemáticas" (IPAM [Indicators of Basic Early Math Skills]) in a local, Spanish-speaking context. This tool has been designed to identify first-grade students at risk for mathematics learning disabilities. The IPAM…

Zhang, Dake; Indyk, Amanda; Greenstein, Steven – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2021
Schematic chunks denote patterns, schemes, or sophisticated rules and knowledge stored in the long-term memory in the form of chunks. We investigated whether schematic chunking is effective in improving the performance of students with math difficulties (MD) and students at risk of math failure, and how the complexity level of geometry problems…

Maki, Kathrin E.; Adams, Sarah R. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2020
Specific learning disabilities (SLD) identification has consistently been shown to be problematic; however, research has largely focused on SLD identification using test scores only. The present study, therefore, examined SLD identification decisions across identification methods and student evaluation data levels, including test scores,…

Cook, Sara Cothren; Collins, Lauren W.; Morin, Lisa L.; Riccomini, Paul J. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2020
The purpose of this review is to determine the evidence base classification of schema-based instruction (SBI) as an intervention to improve word problem-solving outcomes in mathematics for students with learning or mathematics disabilities in Grades K-12. Using the Council for Exceptional Children's quality indicators (QIs) and standards, we…

Pullen, Paige C.; Ashworth, Kristen E.; Ryoo, Ji Hoon – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2020
We investigated the variability across states in the prevalence of learning disabilities (LD) as reported by the U. S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). This expanded upon the work of Hallahan and colleagues on interstate prevalence rate variability of special education disability categories by focusing on a…

Lucia, Abeer; Soffer, Michal – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2020
Studies show that people with a learning disability (LD) are stigmatized. The study adopts the major tenets of the "Attribution Model of Reactions to Stigmas" (AMRS), which postulates that causal attributions to disability ("stigmas") are associated with affective responses that lead to behavioral outcomes. Adopting a…

Sanford, Amanda K.; Pinkney, Christopher J.; Brown, Julie Esparza; Elliott, Cameron G.; Rotert, Emily N.; Sennott, Samuel C. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2020
This study examined the impact of linguistic and cultural enhancements to evidence-based mathematics instruction within a multitiered support system for English learners. The study employed a single subject changing criterion design for four fourth-grade students who were English learners with or at risk of a learning disability diagnosis in…

Mariage, Troy V.; Englert, Carol Sue; Mariage, Mary F. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2020
This exploratory case study used a mixed-methods pre-/post-intervention design to study the impact of an intervention on reading comprehension, annotation, and discussion quality. Five third-grade struggling readers who were part of a Tier 2 reading comprehension group were apprenticed into holding close-reading discussions of informational text.…
