Psychology of Adjustment and the Learning Disabled Student. Alternative Techniques for Teaching Psychology to Learning Disabled Students in the University.
A faculty member involved with the HELDS (Higher Education for Learning Disabled Students) project describes ways in which Psychology of Adjustment courses can be modified to accommodate LD students. He describes the goals and general approach (structured informality) of his class, which features group evening meetings and written assignments in which students analyze situations presented via film, case study, or videotape. Grading, it is explained, is based on class participation and papers as well as on a series of tests. A brief narrative description of the course and a behavioral checklist for LD adults are included. (CL)
