RESOURCES FOR TEACHERS
TEACHERS: LOOKING FOR RESOURCES TO HELP YOUR STUDENTS WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES? HERE ARE A FEW THINGS THAT MAY HELP:
Since almost five percent of all students in our nation’s public schools are classified as having specific learning disabilities (SLD), every teacher can expect to find students with learning disabilities in the classroom. Success for these students requires a focus on individual achievement, individual progress, and individual learning. Despite obstacles, recent research tells us that we can teach these students how to learn. We can put them into a position to compete!
Students who qualify for the learning disabilities classification are entitled to a formal plan that describes how the school will support your child’s educational needs. Learn how these statements—called the Individualized Education Program (IEP) or 504 Plan—are developed and monitored.
