Are you a teacher who finds learning language disability (LLD) students difficult to cater for in the busy classroom?

Working Together: Linking skills and curriculum for adolescents with a language learning disability is a follow up from the successful One in Eleven: Practical strategies for teaching adolescents with a Language Learning Disability.

There are many things that impact LLD students accessing the curriculum. Key areas that can impact LLD students learning are discussed, and include:

  • Difficulties with memory
  • Limitations in oral language and vocabulary
  • Poor reading and writing skills
  • Anxiety
  • Self awareness and empathy

This book shows how the mainstream curriculum Australia wide can be differentiated for the benefit of the entire ability range.
