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 educationLearn about the research and resources used to develop the framework for that domainTake a deep dive and master key terms and definitionsDiscover how the skills associated with each domain develop in typical learnersFind students who are struggling by making good observations, and by identifying missing or underdeveloped skillsIdentify your studentsaEURO ™ strengths so you can help them build and expand on their skillsClearly communicate your observations to all team membersBuild 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.
