Short Course on Teaching Children with Learning Disabilities
There is chance that a lot of classrooms might have a few students with Learning Disabilities (LD). Teachers face tremendous challenges teaching these students, because students with Learning Disabilities often experience significant
difficulties with academic content due to their weaknesses in reading, comprehension, writing, mathematics skills and vocabulary-learning skills. Therefore, there is an urgent need for teachers to be trained to teach these children successfully. This course will offer the required knowledge, skills and teaching strategies for teachers to teach primary and secondary level school children with LD.
This short course will enable the trainee teachers to: identify the students with LD, enhance their professional skills in facilitating the successful learning of children with LD, apply Action Research in their class room to improve the learning ability of selected LD students.
