“The Guide is founded on the principles of early intervention (identifying challenges early, intervening robustly, and using evidence-based practices) and response to intervention (an ongoing cycle of assessment, planning, intervening, and monitoring within a continuum of supports, from school-wide to small group to individual interventions) to help learners who are struggling.
This guide is intended as a starting point for teachers exploring what they might do to support students with learning disabilities.
- identifies characteristics of students with learning disabilities
- provides information about effective teaching and assessment strategies for students with learning disabilities
- provides support for the collaborative planning process including tools to help teachers.”
