The end of innocence: Historiography and representation in the discursive practice of LD

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

14 Scopus citations


In this article, I discuss two interrelated sets of challenges that the discursive practice of learning disability (LD) will need to address, namely, issues associated with the development of a historiography of special education and a more complex understanding of representation issues. I use social theory to address these challenges and raise questions the LD field will need to grapple with as we move toward the consolidation of discursive practices.
