About Essential Skills For Struggling Learners: A

Product Description To provide the right supports for struggling students in grades pre-K to 12, your school team needs a thorough understanding of the skills that contribute to learning—and a systematic way to help students with a wide range of learning difficulties. This innovative planning guide is your key to identifying and prioritizing the essential skills that students with and without learning difficulties need to succeed. This book presents 11 key domains of learning—divided into neurological, developmental, and educational domains—and gives your team a complete, collaborative plan for pinpointing where students need help and adapting your supports to meet those needs. For each of the 11 domains, the authors offer a logical framework that consists of critical skill sets and skills your students need for learning success. Every domain gets a dedicated chapter that helps you: Understand why the domain is essential to learning in both special and general education Learn about the research and resources used to develop the framework for that domain Take a deep dive and master key terms and definitions Discover how the skills associated with each domain develop in typical learners Find students who are struggling by making good observations, and by identifying missing or underdeveloped skills Identify your students’ strengths so you can help them build and expand on their skills Clearly communicate your observations to all team members Build better intervention plans and IEPs using the specific educational objectives, teaching strategies, and accommodations suggested in each chapter PRACTICAL MATERIALS: Each chapter offers an in-depth Case Study example, a Skills Observation Sheet for notetaking during student observations, and a Skills Framework for use as a quick reference on skills when making observations and developing IEPs. Two practical appendices walk school professionals and team leaders through the collaborative process of putting the frameworks in the book into practice. Support students in 11 domains of learning: Vision Skills Hearing Skills Motor Skills Formal Language Skills Pragmatic Language Skills Social Skills Executive Skills Affect and Self-Regulation Skills Reading Skills Writing Skills Math Skills Review I am very impressed with Essential Skills for Struggling Learners. When this book is published, I am seriously considering implementing a book study or a continuing education course for my staff. It will unite the knowledge base among my teachers, speech-pathologists, school psychologists, and administrators and will provide us with common language to use with parents. --Joan A Mele-McCarthy, CCC-SLP About the Author Erik von Hahn, M.D .
