Abstract

To determine the critical research priorities in learning disabilities and the way in which current research activities address these issues, a survey of leading professionals and an analysis of two leading LD journals were conducted. Survey results pointed to treatment maintenance, generalization, and assessment and remediation of academic problems as the highest ranked priorities. Present publication topics were found to address some of the more frequently mentioned issues including academic assessment and remediation, while ignoring generalization and maintenance of treatment effects as well as early identification and prevention of learning disabilities. Implications of survey and journal-analysis results are drawn.
