Clinical field experience b: learning differences | Language Development with Mild to Moderate Disabilities and Disorders

Allocate at least 3 hours in the field to support this field experience.

Part 1: Instruction and Intervention

Deliver the literacy skills lesson you developed with your mentor teacher in “Clinical Field Experience A” to the group of students for whom it was designed. During instruction, informally assess the students, identifying those who are grasping the information and those who would benefit from additional intervention.

Collaborate with the mentor teacher to develop 2-3 interventions based on your informal assessment data to support one or more students’ continued skill development. Detail at least one intervention that can be incorporated in the inclusive classroom and at least one intervention to be utilized at home. Describe the roles of teachers/family members and the student in the description of each intervention.

Part 2: Reflection

In 250-500 words, summarize and reflect upon your experiences delivering the literacy lesson, informally assessing the students, and collaborating with the teacher to develop the additional interventions. Explain the interventions you developed and how you expect them to meet the needs of the students, incorporating their assessment results in your response. Explain how you will use your findings in your future professional practice.
