How to Support a Struggling Reader in Your Classroom

Even after you have discovered that a student in your classroom may struggle with a learning disability, it is crucial to identify which type of learning disability your student may be struggling with, as different disabilities require different practices or methods of care and attention. Many educators also do not know just how common it is for children to struggle with a learning disability to some degree.

Identifying which type of learning disability your student copes with is just as important as making the initial conclusion that your student is struggling and requires extra assistance. In this second installment of our four-part series, “How to Support a Struggling Reader in Your Classroom,” the educators at Lexplore provide an overview of different types of learning disabilities such as dyslexia and a variety of language disorders, as well as how you can support your students who deal with one or more learning disabilities.
