The Planning, Attention, Simultaneous, and Successive (PASS) model is offered as an alternative to the unidimensional conceptualization of intelligence as a general ability. The unidimensional conceptualization has not helped researchers and clinicians understand variations of cognitive functions within special populations such as individuals with learning disabilities, disorders of attention, or mental retardation. Neither has this conceptualization aided in program planning for these… Expand

Models of Intelligence and Learning: An Interview With Jagannath P. Das
Recent developments in the Das-Luria information-processing model of intelligence developed by the Albertan group over more than a quarter of a century are considered. Reviewed in this report areExpand
Intelligence, Working Memory, and Learning Disabilities
This chapter reviews some of our laboratory research on working memory (WM) in children with normal intelligence who have specific learning disabilities (LD) in reading and/or math. Two generalExpand
Advances in educational strategies for children with Down syndrome
Despite a cognitive-linguistic profile that would seem to support reading as an entryway into more complex language, children with Down syndrome have difficulties with aspects of phonologic processing and, like typical children, appear to need such phonologic skills to achieve higher levels of reading.

Cognitive Processes in Children with Developmental Coordination Disorder
The purpose of the chapter is to describe the application of PASS theory and the Cognitive Assessment System to the cognitive assessment of children with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD).Expand
How executive functions are related to intelligence in Williams syndrome.
It is suggested that working memory, inhibiting, and shifting relate differently to intelligence in WS as well as in typical development, with working memory being the EF most closely related to Intelligence in both groups. Expand

Simultaneous and successive synthesis: An alternative model for cognitive abilities.
Current theories of the structure of cognitive abilities are critically examined and found to lack adequate description of the processes underlying the abilities. An alternative model, Luria's theoryExpand

Cognitive decline due to aging among persons with Down syndrome.
The older individuals with Down syndrome performed more poorly than those in the other three groups, and differences were particularly evident in tasks requiring planning and attention. Expand
The Angular Gyrus in Developmental Dyslexia: Task-Specific Differences in Functional Connectivity Within Posterior Cortex
The findings support the view that neurobiological anomalies in developmental dyslexia are largely confined to the phonological-processing domain and suggest that right-hemisphere posterior regions serve a compensatory role in mediating phonological performance in dyslexic readers. Expand
The nature of phonological processing and its causal role in the acquisition of reading skills.
Three bodies of research that have developed in relative isolation center on each of three kinds of phonological processing: phonological awareness, awareness of the sound structure of language;Expand
