Students with Learning Disabilities Participating in Recess
The participation of a student with a Learning Disability (LD) in recess can often be rewarding for the student, peers, and teacher. The issue of NASET’s LD Report, was written by Matthew D. Lucas, Ed.D., C.A.P.E., Associate Professor in the Department of Health, Athletic Training, Recreation, and Kinesiology at Longwood University and Ashley Woodson, a student at Longwood University. The paper will address common characteristics of students with LDs and present basic solutions to improve the experience of these students in the recess setting. Initially the definition, prevalence, and characteristics of LD will be presented. It will then address the benefits and recommendations for children with LD in recess.
