This paper examines different teaching strategies to enable all teachers to teach the primary (K-3rd) learning disabled students to read at the Miami Park Elementary School. It explores the characteristics of the learning disabled (LD) to depict the extensive difficulties they encounter in learning and shows how students with LD also suffer from behavioral problems because of their learning difficulties. The strategies include: diagnosing students early with reading disabilities, designing an individualized- instruction programs for each student, providing intensive-teaching programs for reading, writing and spelling, designing individualized reading programs for students with reading disabilities and stimulating students? desire to learn through creative forms of expression. It analyzes how ultimately, the successful implementation of these strategies requires the collaboration of both the regular education and LD teachers and how together, they can create a consistent and supportive atmosphere of learning for learning disabled students.

From the Paper:

"In other intensive sessions, teachers can employ specialized techniques to help the students with LD overcome their reading difficulties. Many students with LD have difficulties applying what they have learned in other situations. For example, they can read the word "pine," but have difficulties with "wine" or "sign." Therefore, Maureen Lovett, a child psychologist working in experimental public school classrooms in Toronto and Mississauga, came up with a strategy called "talking-to-yourself" learning?a series of rhyming patterns to trigger the sounds of similar words ("Why kids can't read," 1998, p. 42). Learning education teachers at the Miami Park Elementary School can do further research in other successful techniques for teaching the students. Furthermore, they should also teach the regular education teachers about techniques that work for particular students."
