Bundock, Kaitlin; O'Keeffe, Breda V.; Stokes, Kristen; Kladis, Kristin – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2018
Research has shown that: (1) Curriculum-based monitoring (CBM) can be easily implemented and interpreted by teachers (e.g., Fuchs, Deno, & Mirkin, 1984); (2) student outcomes have improved when teachers use CBM to inform instructional decision making (e.g., Fuchs, Fuchs, Hamlett, & Stecker, 1991); (3) reliable and valid measures have been…

Powell, Sarah R.; Fuchs, Lynn S. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2018
Many general and special education teachers teach mathematics word problems by defining problems as a single operation and linking key words to specific operations. Unfortunately, teaching students to approach word problems in these ways discourages mathematical reasoning and frequently produces incorrect answers. This article lists eight common…

Food selectivity is the most commonly reported feeding problem in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD.) Schreck et al. (2004) surveyed 472 caregivers of children between 5 and 12 years of age.

A commonly used method for supporting the writing of students with learning disabilities (LD), graphic organizers have been shown to effectively support instruction for students with LD in a variety of content areas (Dexter & Hughes, 2011). Students with LD often struggle with the process of developing their ideas into organized sentences; the…

Coyne, Michael D.; Koriakin, Taylor A. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2017
Evidence based reading instruction and intervention are essential for students with disabilities. The authors recommend that elementary special education teachers emphasize both code-based and meaning-based skills as part of delivering intensive reading interventions, including providing explicit and systematic decoding and vocabulary instruction.…

Significant numbers of adolescents and young adults do not adequately understand complex texts, impeding their school success, access to postsecondary learning, and opportunities within an increasingly competitive work environment. National data (National Assessment of Educational Progress [NAEP], 2015) have shown improvements among fourth- and…

Harris, Karen R.; Graham, Steve; Aitken, A. Angelique; Barkel, Ashley; Houston, Julia; Ray, Amber – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2017
Students with disabilities often find writing extremely challenging (Harris & Graham, 2016). Special educators can, however, promote tremendous gains in students' ability to write by understanding common challenges students face and mastering specific teaching techniques. Students' writing success depends on reducing how much attention and…

Perle, Jonathan G.; Curtis, David F. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2017
Disruptive behaviors are some of the most commonly presented concerns in the classroom. Without intervention, such difficulties may lead to higher teacher frustration and a higher rate of negative teacher feedback, and they may interfere with students' learning opportunities and result in poorer academic and life adjustment outcomes (Landrum,…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Malone, Amelia S. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2017
This article describes the Taxonomy of Intervention Intensity, which articulates seven principles for evaluating and building intervention intensity based upon research. The Taxonomy's seven dimensions of intensity are strength, dosage, alignment, attention to transfer, comprehensiveness, behavioral support, and individualization (see Table 1). In…

Artman-Meeker, Kathleen; Grant, Thomas O.; Yang, Xueyan – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2016
In our increasingly diverse schools, teachers have a responsibility and an opportunity to help students see themselves and others through the lens of literature. There are few resources available to help teachers make decisions about what literature to choose and how to use that literature in relation to disability in the classroom. This article…

Claravall, Eric Blancaflor – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2016
Morphology is the study of word structure and its meaning. Knowledge and awareness of morphological structure provides a new light to help students with reading disabilities build skills in their word reading and spelling. When teaching morphology, teachers can focus on four literacy components (Claravall, 2013): morphemic analysis, vocabulary and…

Harbour, Kristin E.; Karp, Karen S.; Lingo, Amy S. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2016
One area of algebraic thinking essential for students' success is a relational understanding of the equal sign. Research has indicated a positive correlation between students' relational understanding of the equal sign and their equation-solving performance, suggesting that students' early conception of the equal sign may affect their learning and…

Hughes, Elizabeth M.; Powell, Sarah R.; Stevens, Elizabeth A. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2016
Children with disabilities perform lower in mathematics than their peers without disabilities, and this gap widens from ages 7 to 13 (Wei, Lenz, & Blackorby, 2013). Of even greater concern is that fifth-grade children with mathematics disabilities continue to perform in the bottom quartile of their grade in high school (Shalev, Manor, &…
