Children who have low self-confidence; a negative attitude towards school; score below average on assessments of language comprehension; and have an erratic pattern of errors with no specific linguistic weaknesses on assessments of comprehension, may be suffering from short-term memory difficulties. Written by a practising speech language therapist, this book provides a structured yet flexible approach to addressing the needs of children with short-term memory difficulties. "Short-term memory therapy can be of great benefit with very positive results. "Memory therapy can have a direct and positive impact on a child's receptive language skills, self-confidence and ability to learn. "This practical resource provides a complete programme of ideas for developing a child's short-term memory skills. "The programme can be administered in its entirety, or as an accompaniment to clinician's existing packages of care and is best suited to individual intervention. "The book provides a structured programme for individual therapy, although activities may be adapted for group therapy. "Containing photocopiable activity sheets and supporting material, ideal for use with 7 to 11 year-olds, the book also includes child-friendly recording forms and progress charts. Although written primarily for speech language therapists, this book will prove useful in teaching and practising memory strategies for learning support assistants, teachers, educational psychologists and anyone working with school-aged children. "Anyone working with school-aged children would find the contents of the book useful." Child Language Teaching and Therapy

Learning Disabilities--there is a Cure

A Guide for Parents, Educators, and Physicians

Statistical reports indicate that 2.7 million public school students nationwide have been identified as learning disabled, and that fifty percent of all high school dropouts come from inner city schools where twenty-five percent are learning disabled. Since learning disabled students innately have average to superior IQ¿s, why can¿t they learn? For years educators have been in search of the right reading approach, one that would meet the needs of all children. Since the early 1900¿s we have switched from a sight approach, to a phonetic approach, linguistic, whole language, integrated, and now, a researched based, balanced approach. The No Child Left Behind Act has set a goal that by 2014, all children in the United States are to be proficient in reading. The dilemma lies in how this is to be accomplished even with this improved balanced approach. Educational specialist Addie Cusimano shares her findings which are based on her research, work and success with students from pre-school to college age, from learning disabled to gifted. She presents her answers to the No Child Left Behind Act, discusses approaches that work best, the importance of teaching specific learning skills, and offers many valuable teaching techniques and strategies. Her premise is that learning disabled students can and should be cured at the elementary level, and that the best approach for all children is one that incorporates more facets of learning than are presently taught. This revised second edition of her book adds two new chapters, the teaching of foreign languages and mathematics. Written in an easy to read fashion, Learning Disabilities: There is a Cure offers educators, parents and professionals a refreshing and assured method for the solution to serious academic concerns.

Early Literacy Fundamentals

A Balanced Approach to Language, Listening, and Literacy Skills

Author: Sue Palmer,Ros Bayley

Publisher: Pembroke Publishers Limited

ISBN: 1551381842

Category: Education

Page: 104

View: 4775

Early Literacy Fundamentals offers powerful activities to develop the skills, concepts, and knowledge underpinning early literacy. It builds on the personal, social, emotional, creative, and physical development skills that are a traditional part of early childhood programs. Based on the latest research, the book recognizes that oral language is the bedrock upon which formal learning is based and that literacy: begins at birth and is part of an ongoing developmental process; develops concurrently with oral language development; is enhanced by adult models who expose children to print and how it works; is based on a systematic relationship between letters and sounds; is rooted in and connected to the child's culture and communication patterns. Each of the activities, organized around a seven-strand framework that reflects successful early childhood practices, is presented along with background research and practical advice on helping children initiate their own constructive play. The types of activities teachers will find include: learning activities appropriate to a young child's age and stage of development; quality pre-school activities that boost all children's language and literacy skills, and build a strong foundation for reading and literacy success in school; opportunities for children to use oral language in a variety of ways as they play and experiment with words; adult-initiated whole-group activities that can be extended into child-initiated play. Early Literacy Fundamentals provides a comprehensive overview of the language and literacy experiences children need, and helps teachers give them a strong base on which future reading and learning success can grow.

Train the Brain to Hear

Understanding and Treating Auditory Processing Disorder, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyspraxia, Short Term Memory, Executive Function, Comprehension, and ADD/ADHD (Second Edition)

Train the Brain to Hear was written by a parent and teacher for parents and teachers. The book provides explanations of the learning disabilities dysgraphia, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyslexia and auditory processing disorder as well as the common areas that are affected by learning disabilities including short term memory, executive function and comprehension. The treatment program utilizes brain training and neuroplasticity techniques to encourage development of the connections in the brain that strengthen these skills. The techniques can also be used to work with those who have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, traumatic brain injury or stroke. One of the most difficult things for a parent to hear is that there is something wrong with a child and that there is nothing that can be done to help him. That is what author Jennifer Holland and her husband Charles were told in 2001 when their oldest son was diagnosed with auditory processing disorder. This diagnosis was repeated in 2010 when their second son was diagnosed and again in 2013 when the diagnosis was confirmed in their fourth child. In Charles and Jennifer’s family, auditory processing disorder is a genetic condition inherited from Charles. Jennifer made it her mission to figure out how to help her own children succeed in the classroom and in life. This program will allow you to treat those who are learning disabled from the preschool and early reader age level through adulthood and understand and address many of the most common difficulties they face in everyday life. This book was written and the program developed for every parent who has been told there was nothing that could be done for their child and for every parent/teacher who knows more can be.
