This resource guide provides information on teaching students with learning and behavioral difficulties. The introduction features information on identifying students with learning and behavioral differences, in-class intervention, referrals, and communication with parents. This part is followed by three sections on strategy development: (1) academic considerations and strategies for elementary teachers, including information on listening and following directions, reading skills, written expression, resources, advanced writing skills, basic math skills, advanced math skills, and elementary case studies; (2) academic considerations and strategies for secondary teachers, including information on literacy skills, numeracy skills, tests/exams, and note taking, and additional case studies; and (3) behavioral considerations, including classroom engagement strategies and behavioral case studies. A number of suggestions are presented for most concerns, so that teachers can select strategies which suit both the student and the structure of the classroom. A list of 43 resources for teaching children with learning and behavior problems is provided. Appendices include material on using the key vocabulary technique, sight words, teaching students with "b" and "d" reversals, spelling rules, editing, error monitoring, reading strategies, study strategies, incentive programs, self-monitoring, time management, student behavioral contracts, and transition planning.
