Just the other night I was attending a neighborhood party. During all the conversations we were having I realized one of our good friends had a young daughter who had a leanring disability. For you who know me working with special needs students had been my life for close to twenty years before I entered the proprietary schools. After hearing some of the myths and school IEP meeting struggles I decided to publish an intro to “learning disabilitites” course. Soon you will see the course is available on “Teachable.com”. The URL for my courses are Dr. Carlson’s courses
The presentation is an easy to understand summary of the definition of learning disabilities, assessment value, teaching techniques and teaching approaches that will bring a higher potential for success with special needs students.
This presentation is for teachers at all levels and parents. After my discussion with these parents it stirred me to give some solid proven directions.
My sincere wish is that this can help teachers who have such a wide variety of students in their classrooms. Plus, famialize parents with the process of service.
