Are there alternative treatments for output learning disabilities?

Special education teachers, doctors, and therapists often utilize non-medical treatments for individuals with output learning disabilities. A key "treatment" to improve learning is the use of classroom accommodations such as note taking, audio or video taped classes, tactile learning, alternative evaluations such as presentations or portfolios, and computers. These tools can help a child learn and can also help the teacher identify what they have learned and retained.

Alternative treatments involving diet, vitamin supplements, removing food additives and analyzing trace minerals have been attempted but results remain unsubstantiated.
