The guide is designed to increase the effectiveness of persons who tutor learning disabled (LD) college students by providing information on LD characteristics as well as specific strategies and techniques for working with LD students. Initial sections define learning disabilities and list characteristics of LD college students in such areas as reading, written language, and listening and speaking. Contents include tutoring suggestions in three academic areas: (1) reading (reading flexibility, aids to comprehension, vocabulary development, and development of test questions); (2) writing (techniques to generate ideas, enrich vocabulary, improve organization, improve proofreading, and the use of computers to teach writing); (3) study skills (organization, questioning techniques, memory devices). Appendices include a college study skills checklist and a sample log for tutors to record student progress. (JW)
