Counseling the Learning Disabled College Student in Special Services: A Case Study.
Lancaster, Lance E.
Designed to provide an overview of the etiology and diagnosis of a community college student with a specific learning disability, this paper provides a case study of a 22-year-old Caucasian male student with a mild static brain dysfunction and describes the results of his assessments by Central Florida Community College's (CFCC's) Special Services Department and other agencies. The first sections provide background information on the student and his family, focusing on the employment characteristics of the student's parents, the location of their residence, and their living conditions, and family income. A medical and health history of the student and his family is then provided. The next sections present the results of the student's psychological evaluation at the Human Services Center, his neuropsychological testing at the University Hospital and Clinics, and his Career Interest Assessment at CFCC's Special Services Department. In the next sections, information is provided on the student's daily routine and the entire family's educational background. Following a summary of findings and recommendations concerning the student and his family, a contingency plan and a prognosis concerning the student's educational/vocational success conclude the case study.
