Learning disabilities Resources Catalog

Dear Reader:

       This 2002 Catalog marks 15 years of service for Learning disAbilities Resources. This year we are pleased to include a number of new items for adults and children who learn differently. These items are marked as new. If you are a first time reader of the Learning disAbilities Resources Catalog you will find that most of the items listed in this catalog are found nowhere else. The majority of the products were developed by Dr. Richard Cooper and produced at Learning disAbilities Resources, the exceptions are the items in the Technology Section that we obtain from other suppliers. Dr. Cooper, who himself has a learning difference, has been working with individuals, both children and adults, for 20 years. The items he has developed have helped countless individuals to become independent learners and more successful. Most of the items in this catalog are age and level independent which means that the person is able to individualize the material for his or her needs. This is possible because the materials are designed to meet the specific needs of individuals who think and learn differently, not to a specific age or achievement level. For example Tic Tac Toe Math is an effective method for the fourth grader or the adult education student who cannot remember the multiplication tables.

      Over the years, Dr. Cooper has added the learning tools and systems he uses himself and those he has developed for his students and clients. The catalog now contains items to assist individuals in most basic academic areas. The learning tools, systems, and techniques range from identifying how a person learns to assisting that person learn independently. The items in the catalog are designed to help individual use strengths and minimize weaknesses. The products are very popular with adult education programs, colleges that serve students with learning differences as well as elementary and secondary schools. Because the materials are not age or level specific, many home-schoolers have found the products very useful.

Center for Alternative Learning

The Center for Alternative Learning is a non-profit corporation in the state of Pennsylvania that has 501c3 IRS status. The Center was founded by Dr. Cooper in 1987 to provide low cost and free educational services to individuals with learning differences. The activities at the Center are funded by donations, grants and fees for teacher training courses. The mission of the Center for Alternative Learning is to provide educational, life skills and social services for individuals, both children and adults, who because of their learning problems are undereducated or have weak academic skills. Current programs include adult basic education classes and a literacy program for individuals who have reading problems. Through the Center, Dr. Cooper provides training for parents, teachers and other professionals about learning differences and techniques for developing compensatory strategies. The Center relies heavily on volunteers who assist with both instruction and administration. Without our volunteers we would only be able to provide a minimal level of service.

      Unfortunately, we only have one location in Havertown, Pennsylvania near Philadelphia. Dr. Cooper has met individuals around the country who lament the fact that they are unable to be volunteers at the Center. But they and you can help with your financial contribution to the Center. If you would like to make a donation to the Center, you can add it to your LDR order. Your donation will be transferred to the Center for Alternative Learning and used to offer free assessments and specialized instruction to individuals with learning differences who are not eligible to receive such services elsewhere. 

Learning disAbilities Newsletter

The Center for Alternative Learning’s Newsletter is published five times a year. This four to six page newsletter describes the activities of the Center’s staff, reports regional and national news about learning disabilities and contains information about how to assist individuals with learning differences, problems and disabilities. Articles written by Richard Cooper include explanations about how individuals who learn differently process information and describe alternative learning techniques.

- Math Development series -

            Tic Tac Toe Math continues to grow in both popularity and usefulness.  Evidence of its popularity can be seen in the increased number of training sessions that Dr. Cooper has done around the country, by its appearance on national and state educational convention programs presented by other teachers, and by its mention in Bridges to Practice, the National Institute for Literacy’s training program on learning disabilities.  Additionally, it was the focus of a practitioner’s inquiry report that was published in the Pennsylvania Adult and Continuing Education Journal.  Its usefulness has expanded as a teaching technique for teaching fractions and percentages and is seen as a technique for helping some individuals increase their self-confidence and reduce their test anxiety.  Contact us for a reprint of the article Case Study: Tic Tac Toe Math.

language development series

The Language Development Series is a collection of techniques and instructional tools that Dr. Cooper has either developed or found to be effective with children and adults who learn differently.  These techniques are not for everyone, but rather for those who have not been able to learn with other methods.  Reluctant readers and writers often give up on learning to use written language because the techniques used do not match the way they process information.  The techniques and tools listed here are for the most part age and grade level independent.  For example the spelling and vocabulary workbooks do not have lists of words for different levels but rather the person collects the words to be learned from their experience.

 2550   Individualized Grammar Reference Book  This workbook is designed for the collection of writing errors and space for examples of correct construction.  Many students with poor writing skills find it difficult or impossible to use grammar reference books.  Since they often do not know what is wrong with their writing, they cannot find an example of the correct way to express their thoughts.  Working with a teacher or a tutor, a student can collect their writing errors, organize them by category and have examples of correct written expressions on the facing page.  Instead of searching through a thick grammar reference book, the student checks his/her personal reference for examples of grammatically correct expressions.  The workbook contains a set of labels of grammar terms for categorizing the pages.                                                                                          $7.95

How People Think and Learn Differently

 3010E C-SIP Cooper Screening of Information Processing Dr. Cooper has issued a new edition of the Cooper Screening of Information Processing.  The major change is the inclusion of a short version of the C-SIP.  He developed the short version in response to many requests for a short screening which can be administered in about 10 minutes.  However, the regular C-SIP, that takes between 30 and 45 minutes to administer, is very popular among learning specialists and educators since it provides not only an indication as to whether the person should be referred for further testing but also it provides information for developing an instructional plan.  The beauty of the new edition of the C-SIP is that it contains both long and short version in the same space as the previous edition.  This is achieved by printing the questions and scoring for the short version in red.  Single copies of the 16 page screening instrument are free.  Multiple copies are $0.50 each to cover the cost of two color duplication.                                     $0.50

Double Take  Note Paper

and Now Assignments Books

             Double Take Notebooks, Tablets and Loose Leaf Sheets have become the largest selling products in this catalog.  This note paper is used by many individuals with disabilities in universities, colleges, technical schools, adult education programs and high schools.  These note taking aids are designed to provide an extra set of notes for the user.  Many students with various disabilities are unable to takes notes as other students can.  These students often must make copes of others students’ notes, or worse, rely on their own inadequate notes.  For example, the student with a learning disability, who cannot spell well, may spend much time out of class trying to understand his or her notes.  The student with an auditory processing problem, who cannot listen and write at the same time, often takes few or no written notes.  Students who are physically challenged or hearing impaired also find these note taking aids helpful.

                                Although these duplicating note paper products are designed to accommodate those individuals with disabilities, any student who needs an extra set of notes will find Double Take Note Paper a convenient way to obtain a copy of notes.  The Double Take products come in a variety of formats to meet the needs and preferences of individuals who purchase and use them or the institutions that provide accommodations to their disabled students and employees.

 Tablets

                The Double Take Tablets, similar to the Notebooks, they contain 40 double sheets.  But instead of being held together by wire binding, the tablets are double glued.  The first gluing process binds the white and yellow sheets together so that each pair of white (original) and yellow (copy) sheets stay together so the notes line up properly on the copy.  The second gluing binds the 40 double sheets together into a pad.  They can be easily torn from the pad or left in the pad and folded up after being used.  The yellow sheet is easily separated from the white sheet to provide a student with a set of notes.
