Clay, Marie M, (University of Auckland, Dept of Geography), INNZNA

Looks at attempts to distinguish between organic learning disability (LD) and event produced LD. Considers the relevance of intelligence and achievement tests for identifying LD children. Emphasises that children who are practising inappropriate responses and processing systems for any reason are learning to be LD. Considers some implications for research.
