Classroom Strategies
 
Expressive Problems
Difficulty expressing oneself in spoken or written form
 
Possible Disabilities
  • Learning Disability
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
 
Observable Behavior
  • trouble in word retrieval (i.e., recalling words she/he wants to use in speaking and writing-common words
  • verbal expression can be disjointed as she/he "searches" for the right words
  • has good ideas but poor ability to express them orally or in written form
  • written language reflects poor grammar (i.e., subject-verb agreement; sentence formation is rather basic and awkward)
 
What to do
  • use dictionary constantly; check confusions with another student
  • be careful in selection of courses; preview text book before signing up for class
  • try studying with other members of the class
  • do several rough drafts
  • use a pre-reading routine for text reading
  • create concept maps of the material to be learned (see the Counselor/Coordinator of Student Accommodations for an example of a concept map); check
  • use word processor with "spell check" software
  • use a tutor to review assignments with you
  • write and re-write
  • use a video-tape to practice oral reports
