Xin, Yan Ping; Chiu, Ming Ming; Tzur, Ron; Ma, Xiaojun; Park, Joo Young; Yang, Xuan – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2020
Informed by a constructivist-based, student-adaptive pedagogical approach, this study explores the benefits of teacher-learner discourse moves for the mathematics learning of students with learning disabilities (LD). During a constructivist teaching experiment for nurturing the multiplicative reasoning and problem solving of five third-grade…

Chaparro, Erin A.; Smolkowski, Keith; Jackson, Kathleen Ryan – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2020
Oregon's Effective Behavioral and Instructional Support Systems (EBISS) initiative was implemented in 25 school districts. The initiative trained and coached district leaders and teachers in the use of the EBISS model through the lens of implementation science. The EBISS model integrates school-wide positive behavior intervention and supports…

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…

Wang, Li-Chih – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2020
The relationships among visual and auditory temporal processing, rapid naming, and oral reading fluency in Chinese children with and without dyslexia were examined. Primary school-aged Chinese children with dyslexia (N = 47) and chronological-age-matched controls (N = 47) were recruited. Temporal processing, rapid naming, oral reading fluency,…

Milton, Jessica H.; Flores, Margaret M.; Moore, Alexcia J.; Taylor, Ja'Lia J.; Burton, Megan E. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2019
To meet increasingly complex mathematics standards in late elementary school, students must conceptually understand and be fluent in the operations of multiplication and division. This includes understanding the operations' inverse relation. The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects of alternating concrete-representational-abstract…

Folsom, Jessica S.; Reed, Deborah K.; Aloe, Ariel M.; Schmitz, Sandra S. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2019
This study reports on the instruction provided in district-designed intensive summer reading programs. The Tier 3 intervention was provided to 374 students from 24 school districts who were not meeting the end of third-grade reading benchmarks; students were exiting third grade and entering fourth grade. Observations of the 40 classes were…

O'Connor, Rollanda E.; Beach, Kristen D.; Sanchez, Victoria M.; Kim, Joyce J.; Knight-Teague, Kerri; Orozco, Guadalupe; Jones, Brian T. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2019
Adolescents with disabilities have great difficulty with academic content in middle school, and their teachers have difficulty teaching them to understand and use academic language. We taught teachers of sixth-grade students with learning disabilities, more than half of whom were also English language learners (ELLs), to implement about 15 min of…

Crawford, Lindy; Freeman, Barbara; Huscroft-D'Angelo, Jacqueline; Quebec Fuentes, Sarah; Higgins, Kristina N. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2019
Interventions are implemented with greater fidelity when their core intent is made explicit. The core intent of this intervention was to increase access to higher order learning opportunities for students with learning disabilities or difficulties in mathematics through use of research and practice from the fields of special education and…

Mercer, Sterett H.; Keller-Margulis, Milena A.; Faith, Erin L.; Reid, Erin K.; Ochs, Sarah – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2019
Written-expression curriculum-based measurement (WE-CBM) is used for screening and progress monitoring students with or at risk of learning disabilities (LD) for academic supports; however, WE-CBM has limitations in technical adequacy, construct representation, and scoring feasibility as grade-level increases. The purpose of this study was to…

Ciullo, Stephen; Ely, Emily; McKenna, John William; Alves, Kat D.; Kennedy, Michael J. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2019
Researchers conducted an observation study to explore the instructional practices of special education teachers (N = 20) responsible for teaching reading to students with learning disabilities in Grades 4 and 5. With this study, researchers addressed gaps in previous related literature and improved understanding of how teachers spend their time…

Liu, Jia; Xin, Yan Ping – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2017
Mathematical reasoning is important in conceptual understanding and problem solving. In current reform-based, discourse-oriented mathematics classrooms, students with learning disabilities (LD) encounter challenges articulating or explaining their reasoning processes. Enlightened by the concept of conversational repair borrowed from the field of…

Ritchey, Kristen D.; Palombo, Kimberly; Silverman, Rebecca D.; Speece, Deborah L. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2017
Upper elementary school students who have reading problems may have difficulty in one or more areas of reading, each requiring specific types of interventions. This study evaluated a short-term reading intervention for 46 fifth-grade students with poor reading comprehension. Students were randomly assigned to an intervention or no treatment…

Ok, Min Wook; Bryant, Diane Pedrotty – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2016
This study investigated the effects of explicit, strategic intervention with iPad application practice on the multiplication fact performance and strategy use of elementary students with learning disabilities (LD) using a single-case, multiple probe design across participants. Four fifth-grade students with LD received 15 1:1 intervention sessions…

Hunt, Jessica H.; Welch-Ptak, Jasmine J.; Silva, Juanita M. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2016
Documenting how students with learning disabilities (LD) initially conceive of fractional quantities, and how their understandings may align with or differ from students with mathematics difficulties, is necessary to guide development of assessments and interventions that attach to unique ways of thinking or inherent difficulties these students…

Ciullo, Stephen; Lembke, Erica S.; Carlisle, Abigail; Thomas, Cathy Newman; Goodwin, Marilyn; Judd, Laura – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2016
The authors report findings from a systematic observational study of middle school educators (Grades 6-8) in two states who provided reading interventions within Tier 2 and Tier 3 of a Response to Intervention (RTI) framework. Intervention sessions were coded and analyzed to understand (a) the frequency and type of evidence-based strategies…
