Science for Learning Disabled Students.
Coble, Charles R.; And Others
This paper examines various topics and issues related to the teaching of science to learning disabled (LD) students. It includes: (1) an overview of Public Law 94-142, the Education For All Handicapped Children Act and the nature of learning disabilities; (2) a general method for teaching science to LD students (Such as establishing a routine, limiting choices, ensuring that students are attending, giving students cues to facilitate remembering, sequencing instruction, differentiating between teaching and testing, and being specific in criticism and praise); (3) specific suggestions for teaching science to LD students (providing a list of eight LD student characteristics with corresponding classroom modifications); (4) a summary of curriculum development and research efforts, such as the Developing Coping and Cognitive Skills through Science Program and Project ECSEP: The Exceptional Children Science Education Program (an individualized science curriculum for LD junior high school students); and (5) a consideration of microcomputer applications (including a program designed to develop software and assess its effectiveness with LD junior high school students).
