LD, ADHD & ASD Article Databases

Looking for journal, magazine or newspaper articles on learning differences? 
Here are some databases and search tips to try.

Academic Search Premier

  • Use this database for advanced research requiring academic journal articles.
  • Use "quotation marks" to search for "attention deficit" as a phrase. This phrase will find most articles about ADHD, whether the article calls it "AD/HD," "ADD," "attention deficit disorders," "attention deficit/hyperacitivity disorder" and so forth.
  • This database includes the subject terms "Asperger's Disorder" and "Autism Spectrum Disorders."  (These terms will give you better results than "Asperger" or "ASD.")

ERIC: (Education Resources Information Center)

  • Use this education database for articles, books, conference proceedings, and other resources.
  • Use "quotation marks" to search for "attention deficit" as a phrase. This phrase will find most articles about ADHD, whether the article calls it "AD/HD," "ADD," "attention deficit disorders," "attention deficit/hyperacitivity disorder" and so forth.
  • ERIC uses the subject terms/"descriptors" of "Asperger syndrome" and "autism" instead of "Asperger's" or "ASD."
