I would say no, but I still have some doubts about it so let me hear from you what do you think about it.

Don't throw the baby out with the bath water. Try and find what works about constructivism and use it. I agree that not all of it is applicable, but it could be a tool to be used on that special student who just doesn't seem to "get it."
Radical constructivism does not work. But we are not talking about that. I don t think constructivism would work for special students but maybe only for the more advanced ones. I recommend Sweller's paper " Why minimal guidance doesn t work". Our working memory capacity is limited and a constructivist spproach might overload it. On the other hand I have tryed to replicate one of Sweller's experiment but I got different results which could mean that constructivism approach might not overload our working memory........maybe I didn t do it exactly the same way he did.....
