An Evaluation of the Disabled Students Learning Project at Deakin University.
Gough, J. Eric; McBeath, Clare
A project to adapt learning materials and provide support services for severely disabled persons 22-76 years old in Australia is described and evaluation data presented. Disabilities of the eight students included total blindness, severe physical disability, and partial deafness. Three courses were chosen for adaptation: "Images of Man,""Imperialism--Expansion of Europe," and "Introduction to Psychology." Procedures for transforming print material were developed (examples of modification for low vision students are appended). The evaluation concluded that the project was successful despite delays caused by machine modification problems and despite the additional cost incurred. (CL)
