An Average School Day (for an LD Student)
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     What is an average school day like for a student in a learning disabilities program? Are his classes too hard? Or too easy? Does he get in trouble a lot? Do other kids give him a hard time?
 
2     Look at these examples.
 
3     Toby is in all regular classes. His English class has two teachers, a regular teacher and a special education teacher. It is called an inclusion class. With two teachers, all of the students in English class get extra attention. His other classes are all regular classes with one teacher. When it is time to take a test, he goes with a group of kids who all have their tests read to them. Most of his friends know that he has a learning problem, but it's not a big deal. He is a good student and gets good grades.
 
4     Gus is in a small class with the same teacher for most of the day. In this class, he can work at his own pace. This works best for him because he has trouble reading and writing. It is hard for him to pay attention too, but it is easier in this small class than it would be in a big noisy one. Some of his friends are here most of the day too. Sometimes they all get in trouble together. Then the class takes a time out. He goes to regular PE class and takes electives like Art and Computer Keyboarding in regular classes too.
