Implementation of Instructional Strategies

Instructional strategies require a great deal of clarification and one to one support. Specific strategies include:

  • Always ask questions in a clarifying manner, and then have the students with learning disabilities describe his or her understanding of the questions.
  • Use an overhead projector or computer with an outline of the lesson or unit of the day.
  • Provide clear photocopies of your notes and overhead transparencies, if the student benefits from such strategies.
  • Provide students with chapter outlines or study guides that cue them to key points in their readings.
  • Provide a detailed course syllabus before class begins. Ask questions in a way that helps the student gain confidence.
  • Keep oral instructions logical and concise.
  • Frequently verbalize what is being written on the chalkboard.
  • Establish the clarity of understanding that the student has about class assignments.
  • Give assignments both in written and oral form.
