Special Education Courses for the Learning Disabled: Alternative Techniques for Teaching Special Education and Education Courses to Learning Disabled Students in the University.
Reinhardtsen, Janet M.
An educator involved with the Higher Education for Learning Disabled Students (HELDS) project discusses modifications made by faculty for LD students. Changes are reviewed for traditional lecture courses, seminars, methods, courses, practica, and teacher education tests. Examples of problems exhibited by LD students are described (reading problems, math disabilities, spelling problems, handwriting/fine motor disabilities, written expression problems, organizational difficulties, receptive and expressive language/interpersonal relationship problems). A syllabus is presented for a special education course in diagnosis and assessment of exceptional children. Components of criterion assessments and a behavioral checklist for LD adults are illustrated in appendixes. (CL)
