Students with Learning Disabilities

By Dr. Kathie F. Nunley

A student labeled as LD, or learning disabled has difficulty with language, memory, listening, speaking, reading, writing, spelling, math and/or motor skills. They have a problem with storing, processing and producing information. The problems range from mild to severe. It affects about 10% of the general student population.

To be categorized as learning disabled, the student must have AT LEAST average intelligence, yet be underachieving in one or more academic areas. Some may be gifted students in one or more areas. These students CAN learn, but may need material presented in a different modality or form than the traditional classroom once offered.

Ways to include students with Learning Disabilities

*Try offering assignments in a variety of forms.

*Demonstrate tasks.

*Provide extra space and extra time to process.

*Consider content and effort in addition to writing skills.

*Allow students to work in pairs.

*Use visual progress charts.
