Learning disabilities: simple assessment and proven teaching techniques

This resource contains tools from an Orton-Gillingham Multisensory workshop conducted at the Northern Lights College, Chetwynd. Workshop presenters were Gloria Olafson and Stephanie Lindstrom of the Fraser Lake chapter of the Learning Disabilities Association of British Columbia. The first tool is a chart describing common areas of deficit, their possible impacts on a student, and suggestions for resources and strategies to improve learning. The second tool contains a 1 hour diagnostic tool to discover strengths and weaknesses, with a diagnostic lesson plan and advice on analyzing the diagnostic tool.

This was created as part of the Learning Disabilities & Whole Life Learning project.
