Specific Language Disability Children, A Multi-Sensory Approach to Language Arts: A Guide for Primary Teachers.
Slingerland, Beth H.
Designed for primary teachers, this guide is divided into four parts. Part one provides background information related to understanding specific language disability, the need for early identification, phonics, the use of manuscript instead of cursive, and group therapy. Part two discusses the preparations that are to be made by the teacher, including preparation of material with illustrations to serve as guides for alphabet wall cards, small manuscript alphabet cards, patterns for tracing, expendable patterns, and classroom equipment. Part three discusses the auditory approach and learning to write for spelling and written expression. Subtopics of part three include alphabet cards, blending, spelling, dictation, creative written expression and independent work, and summarizing progress and looking ahead. Part four, "The Visual Approach for Reading," includes daily organization of instruction, alphabet cards, word attack skills, preparation for reading, reading from a book, examples of daily lessons, and summarizing progress and looking ahead. A bibliography is also included. (WR)
