An easy technique to start with is to present materials both verbally and in written form, whether it be on the whiteboard or overhead projector. This allows students to not only see the information, but hear it as well. All students, including mainstream learners, have different learning styles and teaching this way can help a great number of students
Another good teaching strategy is to let students work in groups. Students sometimes learn more from each other. You do not have to do group work every day, but do it often enough so that students who don’t learn as well listening to just the teacher.
When working with students who have learning disabilities, it is important to not overwhelm them with too much information. A good way to avoid information overload is to teach information in smaller chunks. Let’s say we are teaching a lesson on adding fractions with different denominators. Teach the students how to get common denominators, then let them practice that. After they have grasped that concept, then teach them how to add the fractions, practice that, then later on work on reducing fractions to lowest terms.
An additional strategy that is beneficial is to allow students to start their homework in class. I know that many teachers believe that all homework should be done at home, but for students with learning disabilities, they can easily forget the information when they get home, or actually forget that they even have homework to complete. By allowing them to start their homework in class, the teacher can check to make sure that they really understand the material. This also gives the teacher the opportunity to adjust their lesson plans for the following day, based on how many students seem to be struggling with the assignment.
