Students with working memory deficits will have to work much harder than their typically developing peers to learn and carry out classroom activities. The strategies outlined in this article can help to increase the efficiency and functioning of working memory to avoid overload.
This article provides strategies for recognizing and reducing math anxiety in all students while using the growth mindset and inquiry to create dynamic communities of math learners.
Teachers devote a lot of energy to teaching students to become competent readers, which is even more challenging in the inclusive classroom where some students have reading difficulties. This article examines the efficacy of a teaching activity program designed and tested in the three tiers of the Response to Intervention (RTI) model.
Mindfulness interventions are often used in schools to promote social and emotional competencies among K-12 students. You can use the same principles to help your child lower their stress and improve their executive function, attention, and emotional control at home.
For many students with LDs, reading is a challenge that may impact their ability to ‘reading to learn’ in Science. You can use these strategies to help your child learn to read science at home.
Project-Based Learning (PBL) can be easily integrated into distance learning to keep your child working steadily over a longer period of time with less direct oversight on your part. Your child can develop independent research and work skills while delving deeper into topics through genuine curiosity.
It can be challenging to have to help your child learn math concepts you may not have touched for many years; especially if your child has a learning disability (LD). My hope is that this article will show you five helpful ways you can help to engage and support your child with math at home.
In the classroom, teachers work to understand the learning profiles of their students and ensure that lessons and assignments are developed to meet everyone’s needs. At home, you can apply differentiation to help your child meet their learning goals.
Online learning requires considerably more voluntary focus and the ability to persist when an effort is needed. By using the four pillars of learning, active engagement, attention, error feedback, and consolidation you can support all your students when they are learning away from the classroom.
LDs that impact mathematics learning are diverse, and may take many different forms. If your child is struggling with the procedure of a math problem, for example not knowing where to start or forgetting the order of steps to solve a problem, then a heuristic may be helpful.
