A synthesis was conducted to determine the quality and rate of articles published in two prominent journals over the last decade -2003-2013- in the field of special education to help students with Learning Disabilities. In general, analyses of the journals Teaching Exceptional Children and Intervention in School and Clinic revealed that a small portion (17.9%) of 1030 published articles were evidence-based practices. The journals were mostly concerned with elementary school and reading. The articles covered a wide range of topics on special education for students with disabilities and students who are gifted.
