Selecting and Using Materials for College Disabled Students.
Raygor, Betty Ruth; Gotz, Mary
High school graduates too frequently find the routes to their career goals blocked by inadequate reading skills. College instructors can help these academically disabled students by accurately diagnosing students' reading deficiencies and by selecting appropriate materials to strengthen specific skill areas. In selecting materials for learning disabled students it is important to stress visual, auditory, and tactile learning experiences. Basic word recognition skills of reading disabled students can be strengthened through exercises in sound and symbol discrimination, structural analysis (phonics, decoding, and syllabication), dictionary use, figures of speech, and comprehension.
