Lets check what we have learned! New student comes into the program. You know these facts: Student has a learning disability that impacts reading. During your initial classroom assessments, you note that the student is able to read basic level text (i.e., 5th to 6th grade GE) but struggles to understand and/ or remember what he just read. The longer he reads, the more mistakes and errors in word identification and becomes overwhelmed and is unable to articulate basic facts about what he just read.

He shared during his initial orientation to class that he loves Star Wars. 28 Whats Next? Generally, would you say this student has mild, moderate or severe reading difficulties? What are this students accommodations on his Job Corps accommodation plan? Does the plan need some additional accommodations based upon your observations and classroom assessments?

Do the accommodations allow the student to be as independent as possible? If not, what could be done to improve this? 29 For Next Time Reading & Writing Accommodations (Attachment) Reading Tips (Attachment) This webinar Your own research Choose 1-2 accommodations, strategies, or tips to use with your students
