Item description

Explore techniques teachers can use to instill motivation in learning disabled children so that these students can move from a feeling of learned helplessness to one of confidence, raising their self-esteem.

Motivation: How to Encourage the Learning Disabled Student illustrates why children who struggle to learn have such a fragile sense of themselves. Dr. Margaret Jo Shepherd works to encourage teachers and parents to inspire students to work for the satisfaction learning rather than from a desire for approval.

The series was produced with outstanding master teachers in Special Education to help professionals working with kindergarten through adults teach LD students across the curriculum. The tapes provide a good in-service for teachers who have mainstreamed LD students in their classroom and are excellent for programming with parent groups.

This is the second video of Teaching the Learning Disabled Video Program, a series of eight videos. Topics include dealing with motivation, organization, reading concepts, math strategies, multisensory learning techniques and science.

Margaret Jo Shepherd, Ed.D. recently retired as Professor of Education and Coordinator of the Learning Disabilities Program at Columbia University's Teachers College.


Available in DVD format.

Running time: 30 minutes

Ideal for teachers: K - Adult
