Working Together: Linking Skills and Curriculum for Adolescents with a Language Learning Disability

Working Together: Linking skills and curriculum for adolescents with a language learning disability is a working collaboration between Chris Millgate-Smith, secondary teacher, and Mandy Brent, speech pathologist. This new book significantly expands on the work of One in Eleven: Practical strategies for teaching adolescents with a Language Learning Disability published in 2001.

The needs of LLD students can be perceived by busy classroom teachers as just too hard to cater for. This book shows how the mainstream curriculum in all States can be differentiated for the benefit of the entire ability range. Cognitive and strategy instruction has been embedded into six units designed for mixed ability classrooms, covering the major disciplines of English, Maths, Science and History.
