- No matter how enthusiastic or unenthusiastic your students are, you can always give them your attention, patience and understanding
- Give feedback whenever you can. If you require conferences for all of your students (which I think most of us do), you will have a chance to help this student one-on-one
- Make adjustments, even the slightest, that might make your class a better learning environment (sometimes this means something as simple as making an overhead outline of the points you will cover in class. See attachment 1 for other ideas)
- Listen and observe. The best way to find out what student are having trouble with is NOT to talk at them for the duration of a 15 minute conference
- Be consistent. This is perhaps the most important thing you can do. Students with LD will rely on consistent signals from you
- Finally, we try to do anything we can to help our students become actively interested in their own learning, to become self-regulated, to keep adding to their repertoire of strategies, and be able to employ these strategies when appropriate.
