Understanding Secondary Learning Disabled Students: A Developmental By-Pass Approach.
Mosby, Robert J.; Tharpe, Ken
The booklet describes a rationale for teaching junior high school level learning disabled (LD) students. The author discusses how to recognize an LD profile, how to screen for learning disabilities, and how to diagnose using the discrepancy model (chart illustrating the difference between I.Q. expectancy and actual performance). A description of the developmental by-pass technique, in which the student is allowed to learn context material via audio-visuals--thus by-passing areas of developmental delay, is given along with suggestions for its implementation in a regular classroom. The teacher's role is also outlined. (PHR)
