As a special education teacher I have been exposed to children with learning disabilities for many years now, and can attest that these students do depend on caring individuals to support them. My students who have made the most gains are those who read as much as possible, and are given the necessary supports at home. I like to tell my students, "Michael Jordan didn't get to be one of the best basketball players of all time by not practicing and working hard. If you want to learn how to read you need to practice." I have also found great success with building my students' confidence in reading by providing them with books just below their level, and helping them to create goals to increase their level of reading. The sense of pride they feel is priceless!
