Al-Hilawani, Yasser A. – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2020
Proposed guidelines have been published recently (Al-Hilawani, 2016) to help identify and determine for the first time the existence of learning disabilities among students in the Middle East Arab (M.E.A.) countries. These guidelines have been drawn from recent and up-to-date information available on learning disabilities. The purpose of this…

Cantley, Penny L.; Martin, James E. – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2020
Many educators use the "Me! Lessons" to teach high school students with disabilities self-advocacy and self-awareness knowledge and skills. We conducted a mixed-methods study to examine the usefulness of the lessons, obtain student and parent perceptions of the lessons and to examine the lessons' impact on student knowledge. This study…

Lavín, Carlos Enrique; Mason, Linda H.; LeSueur, Robert; Haspel, Paul – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2020
In 1987, James Ysseldyke made an open call in Exceptional Children, asking for manuscript submissions that addressed issues and concerns of culturally diverse learners. Over 30 years have passed since that call, and research with this population remains limited. Approximately 9% of the K-12 special education population nationwide is composed of…

Preston-Smith, Shantha; King-Sears, Margaret E.; Evmenova, Anya S.; Baker, Pamela Hudson – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2020
For graduation, high school students with learning disabilities and other high-incidence disabilities need sufficient science credits. For many students, their success is dependent on how well they learn in co-taught classes. However, students seldom have a voice about co-teaching in science. In this study, high school students with and without…

Namkung, Jessica; Fuchs, Lynn – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
Competence with fractions is foundational to acquiring more advanced mathematical skills. However, achieving competency with fractions is challenging for many students, especially for those with mathematics learning difficulties who often lack foundational skill with whole numbers. Teaching fractions is also challenging for many teachers as they…

Krawec, Jennifer; Steinberg, Marissa – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
Opportunities for students to learn mathematics through innovative, authentic experiences in an inquiry-based instructional approach have become much more common for students in regular and advanced math classes. Yet, the same cannot be said for students with learning disabilities. One of the primary reasons is that key tenets of the inquiry…

Lambert, Rachel; Chun, Mina; Davis, Jessie; Ceja, Kay Lynn; Aguilar, Katie; Moran, Pauline; Manset, Lindsey – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
Educational research undervalues the experiences of people with disabilities, including those with learning disabilities and/or dyslexia, whom we call "insiders." In this study, we examined narratives pertaining to schooling from published memoirs and/or interviews with 30 insiders with learning disabilities or dyslexia. First, we…

Carey, Lisa Beth; Stephan, Catherine; Pritchard, Alison E. – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
Existing research suggests that students with ADHD may not receive the expected benefit from some testing accommodations. One possible explanation for this lack of benefit might be that students do not receive adequate instruction in and practice with testing accommodations to make them effective. The current study was designed to investigate…

Koriakin, Taylor A.; McCurdy, Mark D.; Pritchard, Alison E.; Zabel, T. Andrew; Jacobson, Lisa A. – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
The present study examined clinical utility of teacher ratings on the Colorado Learning Difficulties Questionnaire (CLDQ) learning difficulties screening within a referred, school-aged sample (N=519, 5-18 years). Of this sample, 419 youth had CLDQ reading scale scores from a reading or general education teacher, and 338 had CLDQ math scale ratings…

Gaultney, Jane F.; Peach, Hannah D.; Banerjee, Manju – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
Both ADHD and poor sleep are associated with deficits in prefrontal cortex functioning, and related executive processes (e.g. directing attention, judgement and decision-making). The present study examined whether sleep factors provided an indirect link between certain symptoms of ADHD and impulsivity or future orientation among college students.…

Powell, Sarah R.; Stevens, Elizabeth A.; Berry, Katherine A. – Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2019
Word problems require students to read a language-based problem, identify necessary information to answer a prompt, and perform calculation(s) to develop a problem solution. Solving word problems proves particularly challenging for students with mathematics difficulties because skill in reading, interpretation of language, and mathematics are…
