Faculty Handbook: Students with Learning Disabilities.
Dodd, John M.; Rose, Patricia M.
This handbook was prepared to help faculty members at American Indian tribally controlled colleges meet the challenges of teaching a heterogeneous population of persons with learning disabilities. The handbook does not attempt to point out the specific cultural ramifications of learning disabilities, but instead focuses on information about persons with learning disabilities, services, and accommodations. The handbook begins with definitions of learning disabilities, characteristics of college students with learning disabilities, adult manifestations of learning disabilities, and examples of the difficulties experienced by individuals with learning disabilities. Then, procedures and services to enhance success for persons with learning disabilities are discussed, including instructional accommodations; examination accommodations; suggestions for students; and services such as counseling, course substitutions, and liaison with secondary school programs.
