Accommodating Math Students with Learning Disabilities. By Rochelle Kenyon There may be more learning-disabled students in your math class than you realize. If you have learners who read numbers backwards, have trouble telling time, confuse part whole relationships, have difficulty keeping score in a game, and have difficulty remembering math facts, concepts, rules, formulas, sequences, and procedures, they may be learning disabled. According to the National Adult Literacy and Learning Disabilities Center, "it is estimated that 50 percent to 80 percent of students in Adult Basic Education and literacy programs are affected by learning disabilities," (1995, p. 1).

The implications of such a staggering statistic for the adult basic education (ABE) teacher are worth further investigation. In this article, we will look at some common profiles of learning disabled learners and strategies you can use in your math class to meet their specific learning needs. A Definition Dyscalculia Learner Profiles Defining Accommodations Conclusion References. Academic Accommodations for Students with Learning Disabilities. PDF Version (294 KB) - get Acrobat Reader In recent years, the number of students diagnosed with disabilities who are attending postsecondary institutions has increased dramatically.

Members of the largest group of students with disabilities have learning disabilities. In most situations, a learning disability is not readily observable. Because there are no outward signs of a disability such as a white cane or wheelchair, students with learning disabilities are often overlooked or misunderstood. Learning Disabilities and Functional Limitations Generally speaking, students may be diagnosed with learning disabilities if they are of average or above-average intelligence and there is a significant discrepancy between their academic achievement and their intellectual ability.

Printer Friendly Version (pdf, 33K) January 2002 • Vol. 1, Issue 1 Accommodations for Students with Disabilities in High School By Martha Thurlow Issue: Fewer students with disabilities in middle schools and high schools use accommodations than students with disabilities in elementary schools. Defining the Issue Accommodations are changes in materials or procedures that provide access to instruction and assessments for students with disabilities. They are designed to enable students with disabilities to learn without the impediment of their disabilities, and to show their knowledge and skills rather than the effects of their disabilities. Reprinted with permission from Boxes 3.2 and 3.3 in Thurlow, M.L. There is nothing about students with disabilities, nor about instruction and assessment that would suggest that the number of students with disabilities using accommodations should change as they progress through school.

Association of Educational Therapists. Tip # 1: Homework Hassles? Don’t Blame the Child. Blame the Brain. If you’re at the end of your rope, tired of arguing over homework and missing assignments—take a deep breath, and read on. Children, who struggle with production, are often blamed for having poor time management.

At best they are labeled procrastinators. At worst they are called unmotivated and lazy. For over 15 years, as an educator with a private practice, I’ve been helping families get past the pain, frustration, and anger, by explaining the connection between our time- management behavior and the brain. This is critical information for parents, teachers, and students because today our schools, and society in general, expect our young people to manage their time and be goal directed as if they had an adult brain. When I show students the facts about brain development, I ask them if their brain is ready for their parents to back off? So, what is the poor parent to do? Top Life experiences also affect our brain. Helping Kids Who Struggle With Executive Functions.

Rachel Ehmke Senior WriterChild Mind Institute The first time you hear that your 7-year-old son is weak in "executive functions" it sounds like a joke. No kidding—that's why he's a first-grader, not a CEO. But executive functions are the essential self-regulating skills that we all use every day to accomplish just about everything. Children who have poor executive functioning, including many with ADHD, are more disorganized than other kids. Learning specialists have devised ways to bolster the organizational skills that don't come naturally a child with poor executive functioning.

Checklists The steps necessary for completing a task often aren't obvious to kids with executive dysfunction, and defining them clearly ahead of time makes a task less daunting and more achievable. You can make a checklist for nearly anything, Lee notes, including how to get out of the house on time each morning—often a daily struggle for kids with executive dysfunction. Set Time Limits Use That Planner. Teaching Techniques for Dyscalculia. Mprehension is key - SEN Magazine. Details Created on Monday, 03 March 2014 11:12 Anita Devi looks at how comprehension strategies can assist learners with reading In 2006, the Simple View of Reading advocated by the Rose Review led to an explosion in the market of resources to support the teaching of phonics.

This was supported by the DCSF (and later the DfE) endorsement checklist insisting that all reputable providers demonstrate that their resources met the necessary standards. Shortly to follow suit were a number of strategies to support the development of comprehension. In this article, five key ideas are presented on how to develop comprehension (a star-based approach) and how to combine this with learning in phonics. The learning of reading is not a precise science and it is important for practitioners to remember that we learn to read so that we can read to learn.
