Sessions, Frank Q.
A college professor involved with the HELDS (Higher Education for Learning Disabled Students) project discusses ways in which he modified his course on the sociology of leisure for LD students. Following a review of LD characteristics is a discussion on identifying LD in students. Teaching strategies are discussed (including use of tape recordings, flexibility in testing, use of a course syllabus, and provision of instruction through a variety of modalities). Final comments address his reactions to the HELDS project and the benefits he attributes to it. Among appendixes are a list of teaching tips and a course syllabus. (CL)
