Learning Strategies:

Learning strategies are extremely important tools for students who have learning disabilities. Learning strategies are approaches to learning that focus on how a task is completed rather than what is learned. They help the student obtain independent skills that can be easily transferred to all aspects of life. It is crucial that these techniques and strategies be taught to the student so that they know which strategy to use and how to use it. These strategies will help the student understand & learn new materials or skills, integrate with what he/she already knows, and recall information or skills. Appropriate strategies should be guided by the student’s profile of processing strengths and difficulties. Learning strategies are even more effective when integrated with assistive technology.

Learning strategies can assist the student  in many areas: organization, planning, time management, memory, reading, writing, math, studying, writing tests/exams, etc.
