Learning Disabilities/Resources/Instructional Strategies
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.
