Hi, This is Carly Benus I am individual who has a learning disabilty and have taught children & adults to read for 15 years. When I lived in AZ I helped teachers in their classrooms and gave lectures to future teachers. Distractions is a big problem in classrooms today. Its helpful if the teachers wear sold color shirts and prints on bottom like skirts. Only post ear rings. Do not have your finger nails painted a bright color. Do not have color distractions where are standing when teaching. Do not talk to fast. Do not have treats full of surgar. If possiable have your whole class sit on balance balls. The goal is keep your student present.
When I present materical to a class, in a lecture setting or one on one I use a muli- sensory approach. I would pass out worksheets ,record on a tape what the worksheet said or have a peer link up with student that can read. Then have students talk about materical in small groups. Oh, You might have another student write down what the student who can't spell would like on their handout. Hey, another idea would be is have an older student from a different grade come in to help. It may be important for the class to the understand people all learn differently. If you like me come class to talk to your class I could see what I can do.
If you like to talk futher call me at (541) 3864720. I live in Hood River, OR.
I hope these ideas will help you! Carly
