Activities to promote personal and academic achievement in learning disabled students
Based on a 20-year study conducted by researchers at the Frostig Center, this book identifies the six attributes that lead to success for children with learning disabilities–self-awareness, proactivity, perseverance, goal-setting, social support systems, and emotional coping strategies–and presents structured activities that foster those traits in students. Each of the 60 fun, ready-to-use activities contains a lesson plan and reproducible student worksheet, complete with modifications, accommodations, and helpful teaching tips. This easy-to-use resource helps children with LD develop skills to be successful in school and beyond.
The Frostig Center (Pasadena, CA), founded in 1951, helps children with learning disabilities through their private school, research center, and teacher training division.
