Discover how to effectively meet the needs of students with learning disabilities!

Learning disabilities (LD) vary with each student, and teaching strategies for learners with LD must be responsive to individual differences. Written in an easy-to-read format by experts in special education, this step-by-step guide presents a comprehensive look at learning disabilities, such as cognitive or memory deficits, social-emotional problems, and dyslexia, and discusses appropriate academic instruction, behavioural interventions, and classroom accommodations for learners with LD.

Aligned with the reauthorisation of IDEA 2004, this resource also covers communicating with parents, the school’s responsibilities in the special education process, and legal issues for educators and parents. General and special education teachers will find numerous reproducible forms, a complete glossary of terms, and information on topics such as:

  • Promoting positive social interactions
  • IEP development and educational placement options
  • Postsecondary education options, vocational assessments, and other transition services
  • The role of Response to Intervention (RTI)

Teaching Students With Learning Disabilities provides an invaluable set of tools to help teachers create a positive learning environment and foster a sense of belonging for all learners.

“Provides the reader with a very clear understanding of the student with learning disabilities. This book addresses in detail all the possible processing weaknesses and provides strategies to help a student access the general education curriculum. It’s something you can pick up, locate valuable information in, and refer to time and again.”
- Esther M. Eacho, Special Education Teacher, Fairfax County Public Schools, VA

“This book provides numerous effective strategies that will help teachers meet a variety of student needs.”
- Alyssa M. Carter, Administrator of Federal Programs, Kuna Jt., School District No. 3, ID

“A tool for the practitioner looking for reasons and interventions. This should be on every principal’s book shelf. Even parents could really benefit from reading about the journey they will be taking with their child.”
- Janette Bowen, Sixth-Grade Special Education Teacher, Junction City Middle School, KS
