Books Info:

Supporting Children with Learning Difficulties free pdf This is a practical handbook packed with tips, techniques and suggestions for all those working and living with learning disabled children aged 3-19. How do you teach history to a child who can't remember what they had for dinner? What difference will it make to a child's counting skills if you place the objects in a line? Will breaking down a task into smaller steps help a young person learn how to dress himself? Children with learning disabilities do not follow set patterns of learning, and yet often they are expected to learn in the same way as their more able counterparts. Chris Turner draws on 25 years' experience of working with learning disabled children and young people to provide an introduction to learning disabilities and the effect they have on the individual and their family. She proposes holistic strategies to ensure that every child makes progress, regardless of the extent of their disability. All aspects of learning, from the simplest forms of non-verbal communication to the way ICT can motivate and inspire are explored in this informal guide for anyone wanting to support a child with learning difficulties.
