Classroom Programming for Children with Learning Disabilities.
McCarthy, Jeanne McRae
Basic tenets underlying the philosophy of programing for children with learning disabilities are presented. Focus is placed on the involvement of the classroom teacher utilizing clinical teaching which matches the demands of the task to the cognitive style of the learner. It is pointed out that learning disabilities range in degree from mild to severe and require a variety of treatment programs. A team approach requiring the support of the administration and the involvement of consultants, parents, and even students is seen as necessary to success. Materials are listed in the areas of reading, language arts, science, social studies, and math, and emphasis is placed on adjusting materials and teaching techniques for these children. Continual followup, evaluation, and revision are recommended. The paper emphasizes that classroom programing for children with special learning disabilities nearly always includes planning for use with the regular classroom teacher. (RT)
