How Do Students with Learning Disabilities Learn Best?

Here is a excellent story from PBS's News Hour showing the benefits of including individualized accommodations incorporating the use of technology to assist learning disabled students. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/video/2012/03/21/20120321_amgradengaging.mp4

It was especially encouraging to see how educators individualized instruction to each student's learning style, strengths and weakness while not separating the students with disabilities from the general student population. The story highlights the importance of obtaining an in-depth understanding of a student's educational struggles and demonstrates the way in which such understanding can be used to improve learning.
