Read through the chapter to learn about some of the characteristics/ causes of learning disabilities.
Here are some points I would like to make.
- Learning disabilities (true learning disabilities) can be seen when brain scans are taken. The brains seem to be wired differently.
- In most cases students with learning disabilities can advance in the general education curriculum with supports.
- Because the definition of a learning disability has changed, many teachers in the classroom use the older definition.
- How you approach students with Specific Learning Disabilities depends on the student, but it also depends on your philosophy. Do you view Special Education as a service or a place?
