What works for special needs learners


Reid (special education and communication disorders, U. of Nebraska- Lincoln) and Lienemann, a former classroom resource teacher and doctoral candidate at the U. of Nebraska-Lincoln, provide a guide to strategy instruction for students with learning disabilities. They describe tools for organization and implementation, give guidelines for strategy modeling and scaffolding, and provide sample lesson plans and materials. Using the Self-Regulated Strategy Development model, they concentrate on the academic and motivational aspects of learning problems, detailing the model and types of self-regulation strategies. This is followed by specific strategies in written language, reading comprehension, math, and study skills and mnemonics. Some reproducible worksheets and forms are included.
