Helping Your Struggling Student - Lectures

Coping with Lectures

They will not be able to learn easily from lectures, but if the lectures use pictures and charts etc. it will help the child visualize the material.

It will also help if
the teacher give a written outline to the student and allows time for the child to read it. This will help them get the whole idea so they will be able to add the details they hear to it.

Being able to take written or picture notes or doodling while the teacher is talking may help some to focus on what the teacher is saying.

Some need to see the speakers face. Also some students will find it helpful if they are close to the speaker, such as in the front row in the classroom, so they are not as distracted by other sounds, movement, and visual stimuli.
