Learning Styles of the Developmental or the Learning Disabled?
Poindexter, Starletta Barber
NADE Digest, v1 n2 p26-28 Fall 2005
I have long believed that many of the students in my developmental/remedial/pre-college courses who have been labeled as " developmental," actually are students who, unknowingly, have learning disabilities. These students have failed to learn simply because they have different learning styles than "the norm." It is extremely important for educators to be able to adjust their teaching styles in order to maximize the learning potential of students who are being left behind. In this article, I suggest some of the tools teachers can use to assist these students who have " fallen through the cracks."
