Williams, Kelly J.; Vaughn, Sharon – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2020
English learners with learning disabilities (LD) have well-documented difficulties comprehending text. This study examined the effects of an intensive reading intervention (Reading Intervention for Adolescents [RIA]) on reading outcomes (word reading, vocabulary, and comprehension) for ninth-grade ELs with LD (n = 85). In the RIA, students…

Bratsch-Hines, Mary; Vernon-Feagans, Lynne; Pedonti, Sarah; Varghese, Cheryl – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2020
Students most at risk for reading-related disabilities frequently struggle with word recognition and oral language, including, in the earliest grades, specific skills related to phonological awareness and vocabulary. Classroom teachers' delivery of high-quality differentiated supplemental instruction may promote reading acquisition for these…

Logan, Jessica A. R.; Dynia, Jaclyn M.; Justice, Laura M.; Sawyer, Brook – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2019
The overall purpose of this study was to examine caregivers' adherence to a storybook-reading intervention using latent class analysis (LCA). This study also examined whether adherence was related to child and family characteristics including children's language ability, caregiver education, and whether the child has a disability. Caregivers of…

O'Connor, Rollanda E.; Beach, Kristen D.; Sanchez, Victoria; Bocian, Kathleen M.; Roberts, Sarana; Chan, Olivia – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2017
Helping struggling readers to learn history content in middle school can be difficult due to heavy reading demands. In this study, researchers taught poor readers with and without disabilities in eighth grade to generate main idea statements; create, compare, and contrast paragraphs; and identify cause and effect relations, along with relevant…

Strand Cary, Mari G.; Clarke, Ben; Doabler, Christian T.; Smolkowski, Keith; Fien, Hank; Baker, Scott K. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2017
We report on a practitioner implementation of Fusion, a first-grade mathematics intervention. Studies such as this evaluation of a loose implementation under realistic conditions are important to curriculum developers' understanding of how evidence-based programs and tools work under a variety of implementation scenarios. In this…
