Developing Individualized Learning Activities for Students with Learning Disabilities: A Mini-Course. Trainer's Manual.
The trainer's manual was written for use with teachers in the field and provides guides for teaching a mini-course in developing individualized learning activities for students with learning disabilities. There are four sessions outlined, each having an overview of the goals, activities, materials, and time for the session; an outline of topic to be covered; and handouts for use in the session. A syllabus is provided in session 1. It is explained that the course is designed to provide the participant with a systematic approach to identifying and solving instructional problems posed in the regular classroom by learning disabled children. Specific concerns are surveyed including: (1) developing precise behavioral objectives, (2) using objectives to pinpoint academic needs, (3) selecting and implementing program modifications relevant to specific academic problems, and (4) developing materials where program modifications cannot be used.
