Presentation Transcript

1. Finding Academic Success for Students with Language Based Learning Disabilities

3. Learning Outcomes At the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to: Explain language diagnoses that affect learning.  Describe strategies to assist students with learning across the curriculum.  Discuss the application of the strategies for specific subject areas.

4. Overview: Who are we talking about? Average to above average IQ (overall) Typically higher performance on perceptual reasoning and processing speed than verbal IQ (except for nonverbal learning disability) Working memory usually lower for language processing Achievement A, B, Cs (often with resources)

5. Speech and Language Diagnoses Moderate to Severe Apraxia Phonemic awareness Phonological segmentation Phonological blending (sequencing and resequencing) Language Processing Phonological processing (discrimination, segmentation, blending) Memory processing (#, words, sentences) Cohesion (auditory comprehension, reasoning)

6. Speech and Language Diagnoses Word Retrieval Retrieving (recall) letters Retrieving (recall) sounds Retrieving (recall) letter/sound associations Retrieving (recall) whole words Oral Reading, Spelling, and Writing

7. Executive Function Gestalt (main idea) Details that support the main idea Problem solving Attention Focus Working memory Vocabulary, Listening and Reading Comprehension, Critical Thinking

8. Nonverbal Learning Disability Social/pragmatic language Reading comprehension Main Idea Supporting Details Multiple meaning of words

9. Snowball Effect Phonemic Awareness Phonics (blending and segmentation) Reading Fluency Reading Accuracy Comprehension (word retrieval and critical thinking)

10. Impact Every subject area

11. Best Approach to Early Literacy/Reading High Frequency Words Word Families Phonics

12. Fluency and Accuracy Drill, Drill, Drill!

13. Strategies: Comprehension Highlighting (highlighter tape) Key words in directions Supporting detail for paragraphs and chapters) Example Read each sentence below. Circle the subject and underline the verb. Then write a prepositional phrase on the line to complete the sentence. or Read each sentence below. Circle the subject and underline the verb.
