Understanding Learning Disabilities

Posted in Educational Programs, Inclusion, and Professional Development

“Students with learning disabilities are smart. With careful planning and instruction they can be successful. Giving them the support they need and helping them understand how they learn best, teaches them skills for life.”

I attended a meeting last week led by the Learning4All Team and the focus of our morning discussion was how we can better understand learning disabilities, and how processing affects learning. I was given a new resource that explores how we plan and support programming in response to a student’s assessed area(s) of strength and/ or need that I wanted to share with you.

If you haven’t seen these resources in your schools yet, I would encourage you to spend some time reviewing them! This is a powerful framework to help teachers, support staff, admin, and coaches better understand how to support all learners in our system.
