The foundation of special education is based on understanding , self assessment, connection to IDEAs project, learning and teaching management and school wide positive support. Research of scheme theorists supports the importance of teachers initiating ready to read strategies. This calls for pre work before the students read a topic under study or a book. This will help teachers reflect and discover much about the topic. If the students knowledge is limited concerning a topic, the teacher will consider adding additional knowledge prior to reading to help students improve engagement and comprehensions(Howard, 2009, 75).
The teacher will then recommend the strategies of reading in order to understand a topic. This involves skimming through the material for students to gain a shallow knowledge of the material. For moderate knowledge, scanning is the strategy which comprises of reading the summaries and the introduction ion detail. For detailed knowledge, the teacher should recommend a prior overview of the subjects for students to understand the structure of the topic. This will help a student while reading because he/ she will be able to grasps the content of the material. This can only be done when a teachers has first decided on the important aspects in the text ,synthesize the material and drawn inferences during and after reading (Howard, 2009, p 120).
As a teacher I have to consider the ability of exceptional students in reading. This will, assists the students to be comfortable with reading despite their differences. The students with special needs have strength which are their key to their success. These students work well with intellectual challenges depending their areas of interest and ability. For this to happen the students require full support to accommodate their areas of weakness. They should therefore have programs that support their special needs. The most important aspect is to build a classroom where all students are learning and helping the children who have been left behind to catch up with ethers. A teacher should constantly learn from meaningful work.
