CEU Course Description
Part 1: If you’re a teacher, the number of occasions in which you’ll have to support a student with a learning disability is increasing--not decreasing. It’s therefore vital to know exactly how to teach and manage your classroom to best support not only students who like to learn differently, but also students who may naturally have a more difficult time with some specific studies or functionalities. As a teacher, you’re an integral part of your student’s educational team. You need to know how to recognize and support your students, no matter how they are abled.
Part 2: Specific learning disability (SLD) is the most common eligibility category through which students receive special education services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The purpose of this course, developed using information from the Texas Center for Learning Disabilities, is to summarize research on the identification of SLD and make recommendations for practice. The legal requirements for SLD identification and what constitutes a comprehensive evaluation are included, as well as a discussion of the attributes of SLD according to different conceptual frameworks and research reviews on the reliability and validity of different methods for SLD identification.
Part 3: Reading is a complex task, requiring several regions of the brain to work together. This task is made even trickier because the brain is not naturally wired to learn to read. Students with learning disabilities struggle with understanding the relationship between sounds, letters and words, and with comprehending the meaning of words, phrases, and paragraphs. Research indicates that numerous strategies are effective to help students increase their reading skills and to help teachers work most effectively with LD students.
