Secondary Learning Disability Programs: What Should We Be Doing?
Engelhard, Judy; And Others
The report notes the existence of secondary programing for learning disabled students of widely divergent goals, emphases, organization, and intervention strategies. They propose seven major programing goals which constitute a holistic approach. Each goal is considered in terms of obstacles to its implementation and suggestions for intervention: (1) awareness, development and acceptance of personal strengths and limitations; (2) development of personal control and goal setting skills; (3) development of efficient problem solving and self monitoring strategies; (4) development and/or refinement of basic skills and individually relevant content area competencies; (5) development and/or refinement of social skills; (6) knowledge of personal rights and resources; and (7) exploration of career opportunities compatible with personal attributes and preferences. Six pages of references conclude the document. (CL)
