From the Paper:

"Special needs and special education students have traditionally had more immediate needs in cooperative learning settings when compared to typical students. To be an effective teacher is not always as easy as telling the students to just sit-down and read. Teachers have to understand that there can be less obvious problems at hand like dyslexia, AD/HD, or English as a second language to name a few. When there are underlying issues, both the teacher and the student have to work more closely together in order to reach some desired outcome. "Teaching effectiveness is inferred from the product that was created; it is the product that is the indicator of scholarship." (Cranton, 2000)
"This report aims to provide the general background information about a recently completed clinical case study. The underlying object of this case study was to assess a student with some sort of reading difficulty, set up a program to help assess and correct the problem if possible, and then to record the findings in order to evaluate either success or failure. This type of work provides many opportunities to assess personal rewards and also to evaluate intrinsic rewards one expects of him or herself. The ups and downs of teaching an individual with a specific problem or learning disability can bring to light many personal phobias and justifications in the teacher just as easily as it can demonstrate the student's or his or her parent's fears and expectations."
