STRATEGIES FOR ADULTS
Compensations for Learning Disabilities
Sandra C. Crux
Strategies for Adults is an invaluable handbook for educators of adults or
young adults. While the emphasis is on helping those learners with
learning disabilities, the strategies outlined are useful for all adult
learners. Whether you are a lecturer in a college or university, a
trainer in a factory, a manager of an office, or a teacher of general
interest classes, the clear, concise, and detailed learning strategies
contained in this book will help you better instruct all adults.
The goals of this
handbook are to provide adult educators with:
an informal method to assess the needs of learning disabled
information on formal assessment procedures that can be used in
conjunction with the informal assessment method when a discrepancy
identification of learning disabilities is required;
instructional techniques to be used in their classrooms or other
learning settings; and
strategies to enable learning disabled adults to compensate for
their learning deficits.
The next chapter gets
the adult educator started. It presents the first steps in the compensatory
strategies process: namely, how to find out what learners’ difficulties
are; when formal testing is appropriate; and how HELP can contribute to
decisions on program development.
