[Excerpt] It is an honor to write this reflection on this special issue of LDRP entitled Using Self-Regulated Strategy Development to Support Students with and at-Risk for Learning Disabilities across the Content Areas. The editor of LDRP, Dr. Linda Mason, and the editors of this special issue, Drs. Robin Parks Ennis, Erin FitzPatrick, Debra McKeown, and Sara Sanders, made this special issue possible, and I thank them. This issue represents the first special issue of a journal dedicated to SRSD research—a true landmark for this work.
I began my work on the development of what became SRSD instruction in the late 1970s, based on the characteristics, strengths, and needs of students with LD when learning complex content and abilities. Here, I first provide a history of how SRSD came about and how it initially became focused on writing—something I have never had the chance to do in an article. McKeown et al. (this issue) provide an excellent overview of the initial foundations of what became SRSD, the flexible and recursive stages of instruction, and several of the characteristics of this instructional model; thus, I do not address these aspects here (detailed breakdowns and descriptions of each stage of SRSD instruction and its foundations are available: cf. Harris & Graham, 2009, 2018; Harris et al., 2008). Next, I share my thoughts on the importance and the unique contributions of each article in this special issue. Finally, I conclude with some reflections on the future of SRSD instructional research.
