Cape Cod Two-Day Seminars

Instructional Strategies for Assisting Students with Language-Based Learning Disabilities – Cape Cod Seminars 2024

Designed to enhance direct, explicit instruction of students with language-based learning disabilities (LBLD), this two-day seminar introduces a selection of specific LBLD teaching strategies and materials to help young people achieve success in school. This is a strategy-heavy seminar with an array of supplied materials that are readily usable in a classroom. The following three core modules will be addressed: overview of language-based learning disabilities (core knowledge, best practices); organizational skills (time & materials management, planning); and academic skills (reading comprehension, vocabulary development, note-taking, pre-writing, composition).

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Define the fundamental concepts related to the term “language-based learning disabilities”
  • Recognize and explain how to implement appropriate interventions for a student with organizational deficits
  • Recognize and explain specific strategies for providing students with explicit instruction in reading comprehension, study skills, and writing skills



This course is appropriate for educators at the middle and high school levels.
