You’re coming to the end of the second month of your school year, maybe your first year as a teacher. You’ve gone through many of your strategies to help support a student who might struggle with behavior, academics, or social interactions.
You can talk to the student, get advice from colleagues, former teachers of the student, or their family members. What if you need more options, more strategies to support your student?
Consider visiting All Kinds of Minds. They have a library that “provides insights into the learning challenges that students face”, including:
- Thinking with Numbers
- Mastering the Challenges of Reading
- Getting Thoughts on Paper
- Developing Control Over Attention
- Acquiring Motor Mastery
- Understanding Ideas
- Producing and Communicating Ideas
- Getting Organized and Good Work Habits
- Learning to Relate to Others
As a veteran teacher I visited this site to add to my collection of strategies.
I hope you find their explanation of necessary sub skills, common obstacles, and helpful hints – well – helpful!
