  • Instructional Practices For Students With Mild Learning Disabilities
  • According to IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act), disabled students should have the opportunity to be educated with non-disabled peers.
    This is referred to as the least restricted environment.
    Inclusion in general education classrooms is essential to students with disabilities.
    Students With Disabilities
  • Assistive Technology: a term that includes assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities and includes the process used in selecting, locating, and using them.
    Assistive Technology
  • A student who has trouble learning or who has been classified as having special needs, may qualify for an IEP.
    Some disabilities that may require an IEP include learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism, hearing impairment, vision impairment, speech impairment and language impairment.
    Individualized Education Plan (IEP)
  • Act without thinking
    Hyperactivity
    Trouble focusing
    Trouble paying attention
    Trouble following directions
    Trouble functioning socially and academically
    Symptoms are present over a long period of time
    Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Symptoms
  • About half have specific learning disabilities
    Most have problems in reading and writing
    Have difficulty performing in school
    May require specialized instruction with or without assisted technology
    Kids With ADHD
  • Make sure you have the student’s attention
    Repeat directions and have the student repeat them back to you
    Place instructions on an audio tape so the student can play them back if needed
    Reduce length of assignments
    Allow students to use computers, calculators, and other aids
    Specialized Instruction For Students With ADHD
  • Give choices and variation to assignments to keep the student interested
    Assign another student as a “study buddy”
    Play soft background music
    Integrate student’s interests in assignments
    Use games to reinforce material
    See it, Say it, Write it – to reinforce student’s memory
    Alternate Testing
    Specialized Instruction For Students With ADHD
  • Preview the topic
    Clarify difficult vocabulary
    Determine the main idea
    Summarize key ideas in the lesson
    Offer to read written material aloud (including material written on the board or projector)
    Choose textbooks with less difficult words and texts that offer a clear meaning
    Reading teaching strategies can often follow strategies for teaching the hearing impaired
    Teaching Strategies For Reading
