As an educator, working with a learning-disabled student requires being adept at problem-solving, analyzing tasks, figuring out different ways to teach the same thing, and tailoring the method to fit the child. In addition, the teacher must be able to communicate to the student how he or she learns most effectively and what techniques and methods best enhance that learning process. In this program, Sally L. Smith addresses this complex teacher/learner relationship, a two-way educational process designed, ultimately, to enable LD students to advocate for themselves.
