Learning Disabilities and Challenging Behaviors
Two reasons educators want to implement this book's Building Blocks model in their classroom: They'll have an innovative framework to help them understand the reasons why students in K-12 struggle. They'll have the proven strategies to help students learn. The Building Blocks model is practical, supported by research, and easy to implement. It identifies ten areas important to school success (the building blocks), divided into three levels: the foundational level includes attention and impulse control, emotion and behavior, self-esteem, and learning environment blocks the symbolic processing and memory level contains the visual, auditory, and motor skills blocks the conceptual level comprises using strategies and thinking with language and images A detailed questionnaire for each block helps identify a student's strengths and limitations, cultivate their strengths, address the weaker areas, and develop appropriate accommodations and instructional interventions. Each chapter contains proven teacher strategies to give educators direct information to meet students' individual needs. Once educators understand the causes of students' classroom challenges, educators can design individualized and effective interventions.
