Serving the LD Student in a Vocational Education Classroom. 1984 Digest, Revised.
Brody-Hasazi, Susan; Gillet, Pamela
The digest explores aspects of serving the learning disabled (LD) student in vocational education classrooms. It is noted that LD students may have difficulty following directions and understanding lectures and may forget more often than other students. A list of seven accommodations that can be made for LD students in vocational classrooms includes providing extra time to substitute for writing or copying, finding alternative ways to acquire written information, supplying a list of new terms to be studied before class, speaking slowly and clearly in well organized lectures, permitting the use of calculators or other concrete aids, and helping them organize their thoughts by "thinking aloud." The digest asserts that many LD students can successfully complete vocational education classes. A listing of resources and references on the topic concludes the digest. (CL)
