The Learning Disabled University Student: A Synopsis of Applied Research.
Gajar, Anna; And Others
The paper summarizes four presentations made by members of the Pennsylvania State University Program for Learning Disabled (LD) students. An initial section considers the definition of LD and reviews a study on diagnosing LD in 12 undergraduates. The existence of a foreign language disability in students with good attitudes toward learning a foreign language, but who have repeatedly failed foreign language courses, is discussed, and analysis of scores on the Modern Language Aptitude Test are analyzed. A study to develop norms for evaluating written expression is described. Intervention programing is said to include procedures based on behavioral theories as well as availability of special equipment on a long term basis. Intervention is programed according to the amount of structure needed by the student. (CL)
