|Learning Strategies - Overview
Children with special needs can display a range of cognitive effects that impact development and learning. Global intellectual deficits as well as weaknesses with encoding verbal and visual stimuli and efficient processing of information have been noted in certain disorders.
Because of the variability of effects, the specific learning strategies of each child can require that an effective learning program be designed to fit the child’s strengths and challenges as well as fit within the frame work of the classroom. When provided the appropriate instruction, supports, and services, the child with special needs can be successful in their learning environment.
