Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver. Div. of Special Education Services.; Colorado Council for Learning Disabilities.
This document summarizes the final reports of five Colorado classroom projects funded to promote and evaluate effective instructional techniques for students with learning disabilities. (However, the projects also involved students who were not disabled.) The five projects dealt with: (1) effectiveness of using an edu-kinesthetic whole brain learning program with students with learning disabilities, students with speech/language delay, and regular classroom students; (2) fruits of team teaching within mainstream writing classrooms; (3) making phonics multisensory via visual phonics to enhance early reading instruction; (4) using recorded books to enhance regular and learning-disabled first graders' natural enthusiasm for reading and to maintain their self-confidence about learning; and (5) improvement of decoding skills and perceptual motor speed through use of a combination of visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile approaches to learning sound/symbol relationships.
