Recurring Themes in Learning Disabilities

Coming soon! TeachingLD will be publishing a series of brief papers explaining core concepts about LD. Here are some of the topics we anticipate addressing:

  • Learning Disability is an interdisciplinary field of research and practice that is international and multicultural in scope.
  • Learning Disability is in part a social construction.
  • Learning Disabilities vary in severity and pervasiveness.
  • Individuals with specific Learning Disabilities form a demographically diverse group.
  • A primary responsibility of educators is to minimize the contribution of poor teaching to Learning Disabilities.
  • Advances in the field of Learning Disabilities come through careful, persistent research.
  • Learning Disabilities designate a heterogeneous group of disorders.
