After the training on October 13, Shellie shared several resources; Jeannie Jee followed with some others. They are posted below.
- Starting Over by Joan Knight: It’s a combined teaching manual and student textbook for reading,writing, spelling, vocabulary and handwriting. (Shellie will bring her copy to the next training)
- Applying Research in Reading For Adults; First Steps for Teachers by Susan McShane.
- Other resources: National Center for Learning Disabilities (adult-focused content) and LD Online (link to adult-focused content)
Programs focused on children with LD, but fromwhich Shellie has drawn some examples for working with adults: Lindamood-Bell -has 3 different programs: a) Auditory Discrimnation in Depth (ADD) develops phonemic awareness and its application to reading and spelling, b) Visualizing and Verbalizing develops comprehension and thinking, c) Math-uses manipulatives, imagery, and language to develop underlying math concepts for reasoning and problem solving with numbers from counting through decimals.
