This two-volume notebook is part of a three-volume set containing strategies developed by experienced adult basic education (ABE) teachers in response to learning problems observed in their classrooms. Instructions on how to use the notebook with students with learning disabilities (LD) begin each volume. Volume 1 consists of these seven sections: what learning disabilities are; basic principles for teaching LD learners; glossary of terms; executive function; behavioral issues; basic reading; and reading comprehension. Sections 5-7 each contain an index to subtopics (problems), "what you need to know about" that topic, and subtopics or problems with strategies. Volume 2 consists of these five sections: reading to adolescents and adults; writing; spelling; math; and oral language. Sections 8-12 all have the same components found in Sections 5-7. Appendixes to Volume 2 contain spelling rules, syllabication descriptions, sample exercises, and a 48-item bibliography. (YLB)
