Carlisle, Joanne F. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 1999
This study compared 19 students with learning disabilities (LD) in grades 6 and 8 with their nondisabled peers on the free recall of science passages when differences in passage understanding and domain vocabulary were controlled. Results suggested that the poorer performance of LD students might be the result of the inability to understand and…
