Colker on the Learning Disability Mess

On SSRN:  Ruth Colker has posted her paper, The Learning Disability Mess.  The abstract:
This article explores the widespread inconsistency among the fifty states in defining "learning disability" under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The article also traces the development of this term historically. The author recommends that educational institutions give less weight to the importance of this classification and, instead, develop educational policies that would not disadvantage students with learning disabilities.
