The Importance of Time Management Skills for the Child or Adolescent with Learning Disabilities.
Pisarchick, Sally E.
This document discusses the importance of time management for learning-disabled students and techniques to enhance the teaching of time management skills. Teaching effective time management calls for consideration of the student's readiness to learn new material, effective transitions between activities, clear prioritization of educational concerns from the total educational system, and opportunities for students to manage their own time. When directly teaching time management skills, teachers are advised to role model the desired behaviors, build in reward systems, barter with time, etc. (JDD)
