Learning Together: A Handbook for Teaching Adults with Learning Disabilities.
Love, Linda J.
This handbook addresses the needs of postsecondary instructors who work with students with learning disabilities. The information in the handbook is gathered from sources throughout Canada and the United States. It is intended to lead instructors toward a greater understanding of the educational needs of students with learning disabilities. The handbook is divided into three sections, followed by a bibliography. Section 1 helps the instructor better understand students with learning disabilities and introduces some of the problems faced by adults with learning disabilites. These problems are illustrated by four case histories. Section 2 provides support suggestions and takes the instructor through the steps of identifying problems and helping students who have learning disabilities cope with postsecondary classes and instructors, and is followed by a five-page bibliography of resources grouped by subject.
