SED 562 Methods & Strategies for Teaching Children with Learning Disabilities


4 credit hours

In this course, graduate students examine research-based learning programs and identify matches between student needs and program strengths. Modifications and accommodations to the basic skill areas in standard curricula in K-12 settings are studied. In addition, the graduate student develops skills at designing, implementing, and evaluating remedial programs, adaptation techniques, and activities for students with learning disabilities. Norm-referenced, criterion-referenced, and curriculum-based assessments are explored. The construction of age-appropriate environments that facilitate growth and learning are discussed. The candidate explores various factors related to the IEP, RTI, and 504 processes, learns how the teacher as researcher functions in a classroom, and applies this knowledge during the field experience. Thirty (30) clock hours in a setting with children with learning disabilities are required.
