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 the classes too hard? Or too easy? Does he or she get in trouble a lot? Do other kids give him or her a hard time?
2     Look at these examples.
3     Toby is in an English class that 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     Sara is in a small class with the same teacher for most of the day. In this class, she can work at her own pace. This works best for her because she has trouble reading and writing. It is hard for her to pay attention, too, but it is easier in this small class than it would be in a big, noisy one. Some of her friends are here most of the day, too. Sometimes they all get in trouble together. Then the class takes a time out. She goes to regular PE class and takes electives like art and computer keyboarding in regular classes, too.
5     Jordan is in some special classes and some inclusion classes. A special computer program in an inclusion English class helps Jordan to write. It reads Jordan's words aloud so Jordan can hear what the writing sounds like. Jordan is bright and learns information quickly. When Jordan thinks of a good idea, it must be shared right away. Sometimes Jordan's impulsive behavior can be disruptive, and then Jordan sits in "time out" to settle down.
