Literature Review Method Results Discussion Implications Research Questions What are the predominant etiologies of LD found on the Internet?
What are the predominant interventions recommended for students with LD found on the Internet?
To what extent does the information on LD available on the Internet address changes in policy since 1986? Participants: 23 websites Simmons and Kame'enui (1986) examined information found in popular periodicals to better understand how they might impact the public's attitudes and perceptions about LD. Leko and Griffin (2009) re-examines these findings by investigating information about LD found on the Internet.
The rising number of households, schools and libraries equipped with computers and Internet connections suggests that more people are accessing digital information, regardless of its credibility, authenticity or originality. Data Analysis: 1. Collect general information.
2. Examine the etiologies and interventions.
3. Analyze information on policy changes. General Characteristics Etiologies Interventions Policy Developments The primary causes associated with LD are medically-based or internal to the student. If the public assumes that LD has an actual-internal and medical cause and fail to consider other explanations, several adverse consequences may result. While the public will not necessarily read claims on the Internet that poor instruction may lead to LD, they may learn about the importance of quality instruction for all students, especially those with LD. No explicit reference to poor instruction as the root of LD. However, the websites supported the view that RTI can address some students' learning problems. Findings related to recommended interventions show that Multiple-Treatment Model is the highest (90%), while Aptitude-Treatment Interaction Approach is the lowest (0%). Despite notable improvements in recommended interventions, the overall lack of detailed information pertaining to interventions found on the Internet remains a concern. Possibilities for further research on Internet-based information related to LD are endless. Productive starting points can be identifying who is accessing the information, what their needs are, and how the information is used. Helping key special education and LD organizations find ways for their information to appear more prominently on the Internet. Providing complete, accurate and state-of-the-art information on LD is a professional responsibility. Articulating in the Digital Age 6 websites created for parents, 2 for educators, 5 for both parents & educators, 2 for children, and 8 for no particular audience
