Learning strategies are active approaches to learning that benefit all students, but they are crucial tools for students who have disabilities. They provide structure and organization so that learning can be accomplished more effectively and efficiently.
The most effective strategies for individual students will be those which utilize their learning strengths while helping them to manage their areas of difficulties. However, determining the most appropriate strategies for individual students within specific situations may require a period of trial-and-error as various strategies are proven more or less effective. What works for one student, may not be effective for another student even with a similar learning profile. Further, what works for one student in one situation may not easily transfer to new and different learning situations.
Our learning strategists work with students to create a plan to work on skills, such as:
- Time Management
- Effective Textbook Reading
- Study Skills
