Note-taking can be a powerful learning tool for students. Effective note taking asks students to condense information for recall and then expand ideas back into paraphrased full sentences to use in presentations and essays. However, note-taking is hard for students with learning disabilities.
Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are educational specialists who can help. This case study is a follow-up to a larger Speak and Sketch treatment study. Students were taught three learning strategies: pictography, written notes, and verbal (or whisper) rehearsal of their own spoken, well-formed sentences.
Research Question: Will the Speak and Sketch treatment improve students’ notes, presentations, written reports, and strategy awareness for different topic articles?
