The Dyslexic College Student.
Sims, Barbara
With increased awareness of the reading problems of college students, more attention in recent years has been focused on dyslexia. No reliable figures exist on the occurrence of dyslexia among college students, but 10 percent is a representative estimate among elementary students; hence there would logically be fewer dyslexic college students. However, colleges should be prepared to see more and more dyslexic students in the next few years because of the increase in special education classes in the public schools. For the diagnosed dyslexic student, the teacher of composition should have some concrete methods available to help improve reading and composition skills. The situation is even more critical for the undiagnosed learning-disabled student. College teachers, and especially freshman English instructors, must learn to recognize and provide help for students with dyslexia. (RB)
