Reading Rockets offers a wealth of reading strategies, lessons, and activities from PBS that assist parents, teachers, and other educators to build the fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension skills of struggling readers.
At the the Reading Rockets site, an article by Cynthia Warger acknowledges the special challenge that homework poses for students with learning disabilities. Because teachers are frequently called upon to make accommodations for these students, the article provides details on the following five homework strategies that have been identified by researchers as helping students with disabilities get the most from their homework:
- Give clear and appropriate assignments
- Make homework accommodations
- Teach study skills
- Use a homework calendar
- Ensure clear home/school communication
