An equal opportunity to learn: a sixth grade study of students with learning disabilities
How can educators best support students with learning disabilities, so they feel they are given an equal opportunity to learn? I began my journey by examining how education had affected my life and the people around me, specifically, how special education negatively affected my son Kallen. What can I do as an educator to prevent other students from feeling the same way? After reviewing the literature and interviewing my sixth grade special education students, I found that educators need to be mindful of how they present instruction. Regardless of inclusion or pullout, students learn best in an environment where there is a sense of belonging, high expectations, individualized instruction, and a plan that incorporates all facets of a student's education.
