Journals


Journals are generally print materials with up-to-date scholarly information on a subject. They may contain articles on research, current issues, opinion, etc. There are also electronic subscription versions. One journal on this web page, Learning Disabilities Quarterly, is available by accessing the electronic version using the DISCUS database. I have provided you with instructions on how to access it. The other journal, Annals of Dyslexia, is available through membership in the International Dyslexia Association.
