Helping Children Learn: Intervention Handouts for Use in School and at Home.
This guide offers an approach to teaching children who struggle in school. Featuring almost 50 intervention handouts, the book is ideal for teachers to use in the classroom and parents to use at home. School psychologists can use the short questionnaire based on Naglieri & Das's Cognitive Assessment System to help assess student strengths and needs and select interventions. Teachers and parents can use the photocopiable handouts to help students from elementary through high school: strengthen fundamental skills needed for academic success by facilitating attention, self-control, thinking skills, listening, and more; improve specific skills in academic areas such as reading, writing, spelling, and math; and progress in four cognitive areas with strategies that address common classroom problems related to each area. These handouts were developed around the four cognitive areas the PASS theory: Planning, Attention, Simultaneous processing, and Successive processing. Each handout clearly describes the skill involved, indicates which children should use the intervention, and suggests strategies that can be used with an entire class, small groups, or individual students.
