There's this article, which if I understand it correctly doesn't dispute that there are different learning modalities, but says that studies suggest that students learn with similar efficiency whether or not the teaching modality matches their learning modality

When I was getting my California teaching credential the learning modality thing was accepted as fact, and had been adopted into California law. Teachers were required to create lesson plans that demonstrated that all learning modalities, including kinesthetic, were being addressed. (The kinesthetic learning modality in particular was being heavily stressed at that time.)
