Chapter 7: B. Strategies for Teaching Exceptional Children


The following section describes approaches for teaching children with specific academic talents, those with learning disabilities, and children who are learning English as a second language. More attention has been given to reading disabilities than to math, writing or spelling disabilities, but the strategies included serve as models for teaching in other areas. While the approaches to teaching different exceptional children have been written separately, we would remind our readers that good teaching is good teaching, and strategies that work with specific exceptional children generally work with all other children. Also, given our mix of students in international schools, "pure type" exceptionalities are rarely found.
