Science is a subject that fascinates many children with learning disabilities, and is often a subject they can soar through. Science is a very hands-on, manipulative subject with experiments, models, dynamic videos, etc. By selecting curriculum and resources that will help your child explore science, rather than memorize it, your child can become a leader among peers.
This section of Learning Abled Kids is a bit different than most sections. The "Topics" in the left-hand menu contain lists of dynamic, or interactive, science websites with descriptions. When your child is learning about any of these topics, you can come here and let your child explore websites in a hands-on, interactive manner. If you know of any great virtual science experiences, particularly if you have lists of sites for a science topic your child is passionate about, feel free to email them to me. I will add the topic and interactive sites to the list to help other children with learning disabilities who are interested in the same science topic.
I am exploring and gathering additional information on great hands-on Science curricula. If you have a hands-on program you love, let me know!

For visual learners, in particular, this video series helps explain modern scientific exploration and concepts. The detailed, step-by-step process of exploration helps make concepts understandable and the colorful videography engages even "reluctant" learners. This series is particularly wonderful for middle to high school aged children, although even at an upper elementary age our children were able to gain a lot of concept knowledge from the series.
