Teaching Children Who Learn Differently. A Course Designed for the Regular Classroom Teacher in Diagnosing and Prescribing for the Learning Disabled Child.
Kosko, Ken, Ed.; And Others
Intended as a text to supplement inservice training for regular class teachers, the manual presents information on diagnostic-prescriptive teaching with mainstreamed learning disabled students. Ten sections focus on the following diagnostic aspects: referral, parent involvement, case history collection, assessment of academic abilities and disabilities, observation of learning modalities, auditory perception and language factors in learning, visual perception, psychological assessment, data analysis, and situational analysis. The final five chapters discuss delivering services (including preparing an individualized education program and selecting materials to fit the learning style), and strategies for teaching arithmetic, spelling, and reading.
