Overview

Ready-to-Use Activities to Help Kids with Learning Disabilities Succeed in School and in Life

From the acclaimed Frostig Center comes a valuable resource for teachers and parents of children with learning disabilities. Based on a 20-year study, Frostig research has revealed six attributes that lead to long-term success for individuals with LD. This book helps teachers identify and encourage the growth of characteristics that will help students thrive in the classroom, at home, and in social situations. The book offers an array of classroom-tested,

engaging activities—complete with reproducible worksheets—that have been proven to foster the "success attributes" in children.

The six attributes identified by the Frostig Center are:

  • Self-awareness
  • Proactivity

  • Perseverance

  • Goal setting

  • Use of social support systems

  • Emotional coping strategies

Each of the book's activities contains a lesson plan with goals, materials, and procedures, including teaching instructions and reproducible student worksheets. The book is designed to be both flexible and easy-to-use. All activities can be modified to accommodate a variety of learners.

Praise for The 6 Success Factors for Children with Learning Disabilities

"Provides educators, parents, and other caregivers with pragmatic and measurable strategies to foster maturity and independence?The activities demonstrate that success is not amorphous and unattainable—rather, it can be achieved by adopting an established set of behaviors, attitudes, and characteristics. [This book] will be enormously useful as you prepare your students for their journey to adulthood." —From the foreword by Richard D. Lavoie, bestselling author, It's So Much Work to be Your Friend and The Motivation Breakthrough
