Teaching Students with Learning Disabilities. Programming for Students with Special Needs, Book 6.

Part of a seven-book series called "Programming for Students with Special Needs," this book offers all teachers information to enhance their understanding of learning disabilities and provides practical strategies to assist in teaching students with special needs. Section 1 discusses the definition of learning disabilities, labeling, and the domain model, which organizes student characteristics into interacting domains (metacognition, information processing, communication, academic, and social/adaptive). A domain model checklist is provided. Section 2 includes identification and program planning information that addresses early identification, student support teams, assessment, individualized program plans, maximizing student success, and long-range/transition planning. Examples illustrating the process of providing services are described. Section 3 describes practical strategies within specific domains. Strategies are provided for: (1) metacognition, thinking, and study and organizational skills; (2) receiving, organizing, storing and retrieving information, and gross and fine motor skills; (3) auditory skills, language skills, and language output; (4) reading, written expression, spelling, mathematics, science, social studies, and using textbooks; and (5) self-esteem, prosocial skills, and self-monitoring. Section 4 addresses other learning difficulties, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and fetal alcohol syndrome/effects. Sections 5 through 9 contain blackline masters, a list of other teaching resources, an annotated test inventory, and support network contacts. (Contains 143 references.) (CR)
