Science 29 July The ability to recognize people by their voice is an important social behavior.
Individuals differ in how they pronounce words, and listeners may take advantage of language-specific knowledge of speech phonology to facilitate recognizing voices. Impaired phonological processing is characteristic of dyslexia and thought to be a basis for difficulty in learning to read.
Individuals with dyslexia exhibited impaired voice-recognition abilities compared with controls only for voices speaking their native language. These results demonstrate the importance of linguistic representations for voice recognition. A Meta-Analysis Berkeley, S. Reading comprehension instruction for students with learning disabilities.
Remedial and Special Education, 31 6This meta-analysis of research conducted between and synthesizes findings of 40 studies for improving the reading comprehension of students with learning disabilities. Results showed that reading comprehension interventions are generally very effective. Higher outcomes were noted for interventions that were implemented by researchers than those implemented by teachers.
Implications for practice and further research are discussed. Pediatrics ;;; originally published online Jul 27, Retrieved January 7, from http: This joint statement of pediatric ophthalmologists and pediatricians concerned with learning disabilities states: Vision problems can interfere with the process of learning; however, vision problems are not the cause of primary dyslexia or learning disabilities.
Scientific evidence does not support the efficacy of eye exercises, behavioral vision therapy, or special tinted filters or lenses for improving the long-term educational performance in these complex pediatric neurocognitive conditions. Diagnostic and treatment approaches that lack scientific evidence of efficacy, including eye exercises, behavioral vision therapy, or special tinted filters or lenses, are not endorsed and should not be recommended.
From Research to Practice Scammacca, N. Extensive reading interventions in grades K From research to practice. This report summarizes 12 peer-reviewed, high-quality research studies between and and synthesizes their findings on the effects of extensive reading interventions comprising at least instructional sessions for struggling K-3 readers.
It then explains the related implications for practice for students with reading problems or learning disabilities in an RTI setting. Integrating strategy instruction in a universally designed digital literacy environment.Provide focused instruction using leveled books for excellent opportunities to expose students to informational texts as stressed by the Common Core State Standards.
The Common Core State Standards aim to raise student achievement by standardizing what's taught in schools across the United States, but have sparked controversy among educators, parents and. The Common Core standards are not curriculum. Curriculum is what teachers actually follow, or do, in the classroom, and what students do at home.
Standards simply say what we want students to learn. This article examines the Common Core State Standards as they apply to writing and students with learning disabilities (LD).
We first consider why the implementation of these standards is advantageous to writing instruction for students with LD as well as the challenges in implementing them. The Common Core State Standards describe learning goals for each grade level in math and English language arts, with a focus on preparing students for college and the real world.
The standards were developed by a group of state education chiefs and governors with . The Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects (“the standards”) represent the next generation of K–12 standards designed to prepare all students for success in college, career, and life by .
