Subject: Defined areas of student struggles

I am trying to find resources that define specific areas of student 
struggles in the math classroom at the high school level. That is, are 
there articles/research around areas (concepts or otherwise) that have 
been defined as necessary and sufficient for struggling learners to 
succeed in mathematics. I know there is a lot of anecdotal inference that 
allows some to argue that students have to build their arithmetic skills 
prior to abstraction. Is there any research that suggests this is true, 
or more importantly, that this type of solution is a necessary condition 
for success in algebra and beyond?
