Available exclusively through Amazon: Strategies for Teaching Students with Severe and Low Incidence Disabilities
Siegfried Engelmann’s Direct Instruction (DI) programs have demonstrated time and time again how all children can learn when taught effectively. In Strategies for Teaching Students with Severe and Low-Incidence Disabilities, Engelmann focuses on working with individuals who may require additional instruction in language-based skills, motor skills and in management of disruptive behavior prior to being taught in a general education setting. Engelmann starts by describing the theory that underlies the development of individual programs for students with severe and low-incidence disabilities. He provides guidance for teachers, caregivers, and therapists on developing programs that focus on the individual needs of their own students. The book acknowledges that some students will proceed faster than others and, therefore, provides explicit guidance in helping teachers decide where to begin their work. Strategies for Teaching Students with Severe and Low-Incidence Disabilities can be used as a general tool and guide for teachers working with a variety of populations, as well as, a reliable reference for teachers, caregivers and therapists to turn to when faced with a new situation.
