The Special Educator's Role in Teacher Training for Personnel Working with Learning Disabled College Students.
Shaw, Stan F.; Norlander, Kay A.
The paper describes the need for increased training in services for learning disabled (LD) college students, noting large increases in numbers of LD students attending college. The role of special education teacher trainers in serving this population is stressed. Training roles are considered for special education teacher trainers in direct service and leadership training. Approaches to training are said to require cross-disciplinary efforts with input from counseling, school psychology, higher education, and special education, as well as rehabilitation. Direct service personnel competencies are seen to include assessment of adults, implementation of academic and learning strategies interventions, individual and group counseling, and consultation with college faculty. Leadership personnel require competencies in applied research and program evaluation. (CL)
