Brafford, Tasia; Harn, Beth; Clarke, Ben; Doabler, Christian T.; Kosty, Derek; Scalise, Kathleen – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2023
Assessing implementation allows for a better understanding of an intervention's effects and the mechanisms that influence its impact. Two main areas of implementation are: (1) the quality with which an intervention is delivered; and (2) instructors' adherence to the programmed intervention. The current study used data from a kindergarten…

Thomas, Elizabeth R.; Lembke, Erica S.; Gandhi, Allison Gruner – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2023
Comprehensive schoolwide initiatives like integrated multitiered systems of support (I-MTSS) and universal design for learning (UDL) present opportunities for large-scale impact on improving teacher instructional practices and, therefore, student outcomes. Specifically, implementing I-MTSS and UDL concurrently presents an opportunity to enhance…

Rhinehart, Laura V.; Gotlieb, Rebecca J. M. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2023
Many schools now screen students for dyslexia in early grades. However, there are valid concerns that these screeners may be biased or ineffective at screening students who are not yet proficient in English (i.e., English Learners; ELs). The present study examined the performance of 54 first graders on a dyslexia screener. Results showed that…

Hott, Brittany L.; Heiniger, Sarah; Justus, Jasmine; Randolph, Kathleen M.; Al Shabibi, Amal; Beasley, Brooki; Frank, Kerry; Mitchell, Wendy; Tennell, Courtney; Wester, Fanee – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2023
Single-case research designs are useful for learning disability researchers interested in refining novel interventions (e.g., new mathematics intervention) before scaling, small n populations (e.g., students with comorbid learning and emotional and behavioral disabilities), and testing unique conditions (e.g., remote locales). Much attention has…

Abecassis, Sharon; Magen, Hagit; Weintraub, Naomi – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2023
Higher education students with specific learning disorders (SLD) often experience difficulties in basic learning skills, including typing on computers, which has become the most common writing mode for academic purposes. This may affect their academic performance. We compared the typing performance, product, and technique (screen gaze, finger use)…

Finch, W. Holmes; Finch, Maria E. Hern├índez; Avery, Brooke – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2023
Progress monitoring using curriculum-based measures administered to a student at multiple points in time is common in educational settings. Recent research has demonstrated that common approaches to identifying individuals in need of special services, such as the trend line or median techniques, can be negatively impacted by the nonlinear change…

Peeples, Katherine N.; Kroesch, Allison M.; VanUitert, Victoria J. – Learning Disabilities Research & Practice, 2023
Middle school students with learning disabilities often struggle with reading and literacy skills, including vocabulary, and require support in content-area classes such as mathematics where weak vocabulary knowledge can negatively affect learning, achievement, and deep understanding. However, in general, middle school mathematics teachers do not…
