Perspectives on learning disabilities : biological, cognitive, contextual by Louise Spear-Swerling( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More children than ever before are being labeled as learning disabled (LD), including some who in the past would have been labeled mentally retarded. But despite the reliance on the term, few agree on its definition or origins." "This edited volume attempts to bridge that knowledge gap by bringing together experts from a variety of perspectives -biological, cognitive, educational, sociological, and interactive - to discuss the nature of LD, its origins, its diagnosis, and effective remediation."--Jacket

Teaching for thinking by Robert J Sternberg( Book )

28 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We have tried to put down in one place, in an organized fashion, much of what we have come to believe about how to teach effectively for thinking. /// The organizing ideas for the entire volume come from Sternberg's triarchic (3-part) theory of thinking, according to which thinking is of 3 basic kinds: analytical, creative, and practical. /// Our book is for teachers of students in grades K through 12. Our mission is to help them understand the various kinds of thinking, and then to apply these understandings directly to their instruction.

The power of RTI and reading profiles : a blueprint for solving reading problems by Louise Spear-Swerling( )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The reading problems addressed in the book move beyond those associated with disabilities such as dyslexia or high-functioning autism. The author addresses experientially based reading difficulties caused by inadequate instruction or limited exposure to academic language/literacy. Unlike other books on response to intervention (RTI), this book presents an argument for using RTI as a method of identification as well as intervention in combination with individual students' reading profiles. The case studies and practical examples cover a broad range of reading problems (not only learning disabilities) to help make research findings applicable to a multidisciplinary audience, especially practitioners"--

Educational Implications of an Interactive Model of Reading Disability by Louise Spear-Swerling( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents a cognitive model of reading disability that looks at how the disability develops across the age and grade span and how it relates to the process of reading acquisition in normal-achieving readers. The model uses the metaphor of a "road map," which identifies the normal road to proficient reading through six phases: visual-cue word recognition, phonetic-cue word recognition, controlled word recognition, automatic word recognition, strategic reading, and proficient reading. Reading disability is conceptualized as involving departures from the normal path in one or more of the first four phases, leading to four possible patterns of reading disability (nonalphabetic, compensatory, nonautomatic, and delayed), which may or may not involve the same underlying causal deficit. The model also emphasizes that reading disability always involves interaction between the child's intrinsic cognitive characteristics and environmental influences. Features which distinguish this model from others include its relatively broad scope, its developmental nature, and its interactive view. Educational implications include recognition that the many cognitive deficits seen in reading disability change developmentally; that the measures most useful in identifying the disability vary with its pattern; that all children benefit from a combination of code-oriented and meaning-oriented approaches to reading instruction; that early identification of reading disability is important because of the cognitive and motivational consequences of longstanding reading failure; and that there is little scientific support for the practice of identifying poor readers based upon IQ-achievement discrepancies.
