Learning Disabilities/Strategies to Help Guide the Learning Disabled Student to Success
Research continues to confirm that we can teach students with learning disabilities to “learn how to learn.” We can put them into a position to understand and value their own education. Because everyone learns differently, helping children reach their maximum potential should be the goal in every classroom. A variety of tips and tools have been developed throughout this course to help both teachers and parents provide the most supportive and successful learning environment. This course will provide a wealth of information and a comprehensive overview of evidence-based remediation and accommodation teaching strategies. This course will include: the visible signs of learning disorders; effective teaching and accommodation strategies; most recent technology, diagnostic criteria; and self-esteem. This course applies to all Educators K-12.
NOTE: This is a separate and independent course from ABC’s of Learning Disabilities and Beyond – Resources for Educators . This course was designed to provide additonal information and direction beyond the ABC’s course.
