LD international

Posted Aug 02 2007 12:00am

Seeing the stories by Ms. Gifty Quarcoo from Africa reminded me that the special issue of Learning Disabilities Research & Practice (LDR&P) on international perspectives on Learning Disabilities is progressing toward publication. I don’t see an previous references to it in entries here on LD Blog, so let me note it here.

A marvelous group of scholars from different parts of the Earth have contributed to a special issue of LDR&P. Here is an alphabetical list of the contents of the issue.

  • Abosi, O. (In press). Educating children with learning disabilities in Africa. Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, 22(3).
  • Correia, L. M., & Martins, A. P. L. (In press). Specific learning disabilities and the Portuguese educational system. Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, 22(3).
  • Gumple, T. P., & Sharoni, V. (In press). Current best-practices in learning disabilities in Israel. Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, 22(3).
  • Jiménez, J. E., & Cadena, C. G. (In press). Learning disabilities in Guatemala and Spain: A cross-national study of the prevalence and cognitive processes associated with reading and spelling disabilities. Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, 22(3).
  • Jung, D. Y. South Korean perspectives on learning disabilities. Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, 22(3).
  • Thygesen, R. (In press). Students with learning disabilities: An update on Norwegian educational policy, practice, and research. Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, 22(3).
  • Tzeng, S.-J. (In press). Learning disabilities in Taiwan. Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, 22(3).

Along with my colleagues, Clay Keller and Li-Yu Hung, I was pleased to be able to act as editor for the special issue. I hope that it will help people around the world gain greater understanding of Learning Disabilities. Thanks to Charlie Hughes, editor of LDR&P, and the Division for Learning Disabilities for allowing us to assemble this fine set of articles.
