Learning Disabilities: A Radical Behaviorist Point of View

pp. 41—45

Learning disabilities inhere in the circumstances of the environment in which children function, not in children. Any child may be learning disabled, depending on the environment. Conversely, any learning disabled child may become able, or more able, if the environment is structured to make him so.
