Not only is this a tremendous site for kids with learning disabilities, it is a
great teaching tool for people in training to become teachers - both special
education and general education teachers. In the "Art Gallery" and "KidZone
Magazine" sections, samples of work done by kids with learning disabilities can
be viewed. Many times teachers in training have no idea what typical work from
this population might look like. This can be very eye-opening! In "Listen
Up!," you can listen to questions about IEP meetings being explained in very
straightforward language. "Read Up!" and "Speak Up!" are excellent repositories
of materials for new teachers to share with their young students. Finally,
"Interact Up!" has 2 links which my teachers have found very useful. There is a
simulation of what some individuals with learning disabilities see when they
read. You can then click on another link to see the actual reading sample. The
second item is a quiz about famous people who have learning disabilities.
Students always feel better about themselves when they learn that Winston
Churchill and Tom Cruise also had/have learning disabilities. Both of the
activities are very effective when used with a general education audience.

Technical Remarks:

The "Listen Up!" section of this site requires RealPlayer.
