Children with Learning Disabilities:

Technology the KEY to Success in the Classroom


Children with learning disabilities

Teaching Children with learning disabilitiesinvolves giving rewards more than punishments in order to build self esteem, finding ways to encourage the child, enforce classroom rules consistently keeping in mind the special needs of the student with learning disabilities, giving out only one task at a time and most importantly creating an environment that allows the student to be successful in the classroom.


Auditory processing disorder

Auditory Processing Disorder

A central auditory processing disorder (CAPD) is a condition in which one has difficulty processing or interpreting auditory information. The typical individual with a central auditory disorder has normal hearing, but is unable to interpret or process speech when in an environment which is less than quiet.

Environments such as a classroom setting, the work place, community gatherings, and church are often very threatening because of this auditory difficulty.

When the Chips Are Down(Video)By Richard Lavoie

  • Strategies and philosophy changes for improving your student’s behavior through positive interactions.

  • Our students are - first and foremost - CHILDREN. They have the same rights, responsibilities, feelings, needs, and fears of all children.

  • It is important that you do all in your power to ensure that the child has as typical a childhood experience as possible.

  • Children should be praised, reinforced, and rewarded for positive and appropriate behavior. Only by using this approach will the child's behavior change, improve, and generalize to a variety of settings.

Visual processing disorder dyslexia

Visual Processing DisorderDyslexia

Dyslexic people are visual, multi-dimensional thinkers. They are intuitive and highly creative, and excel at hands-on learning. Because they think in pictures, it is sometimes hard for them to understand letters, numbers, symbols, and written words. They can learn to read, write and study efficiently when methods geared to their unique learning style are utilized.

Visual spatial disorders dsycalculia

Visual Spatial Disorders:Dsycalculia

It is important to recognize that average, bright, and even very bright youngsters can have the severe visual-spatial organization deficits that make developing simple math concepts extremely difficult. When such deficits are accompanied by strong verbal skills, there is a tendency to disbelieve the impaired area of functioning.

Parents and teachers can spend years growling, "She's just not trying ... He just doesn't pay attention . . . Because other accompanying weaknesses usually include a poor sense of body in space, difficulty reading the nonverbal social signals of gesture and face, and often severe disorganization in the world of "things," it can be easy to mistake the problem.

Attention deficit hyper activity disorder adhd

Attention Deficit Hyper Activity Disorder (ADHD)

  • A disability that involves challenges with attention span, lack of organization, impulse control, and the intensity level of activities at school, home or at work. Typical behavior would include such things as distractibility; difficulty with following instructions or in waiting for turns within groups; a difficulty with staying on task with chores or play activities; a difficulty with sitting or playing quietly; inattention; restlessness; and in severe cases even engaging in physically harmful or dangerous activities, without a concern for the resulting consequences for self or others.


Children with learning disabilities

ADHD

  • The ADD/ADHD child isn't lazy, or just not getting it. In fact, it's quite the opposite, they're getting EVERYTHING! But in trying to process the assignment and get the work done, the EVERYTHING gets in the way. The ADD/ADHD child can not screen out the other things going on around them, they absorb it all, and therefore are overwhelmed and can't get ANYTHING done.

The myth of laziness by dr mel levine

The Myth of LazinessByDr. Mel Levine

  • According to Dr. Levine Output Failure is a phenomenon that can decimate a student’s productivity in school and cause some to fail in the workplace as adults.

  • Often these students absorb and process information well; they learn, but they don’t produce despite their abundant intellectual promise.

  • In most instances, they can read far better than they can write, and they can interpret information but somehow can’t put what they learn to productive use. It seems as if they have working disabilities; they are unable to get their minds to work!
