Colleges Offering Programs for Students with a Learning Disability. Second Edition.
Arkava, Alan J.; Sterrett, Barbara B.
A survey of colleges was conducted to identify those colleges that offer programs for the learning disabled, and the survey results are compiled in this directory of 83 programs. Each program description includes the college's name, address, and telephone number; program title; fees charged to the student for special services; name, title, and telephone number of contact person; criteria for college admission; data required for admission to program; specific services provided; extent of services; personnel available to students; number of students handled by each special education teacher; attendance requirements for a preliminary summer program; study skills courses offered; advisory services available; modifications/compensatory methods available to students; and allowance for utilization of calculators, tape recorders, peer notetaking, and word processors. A list of 60 additional colleges, which lack complete programs for the learning-disabled but do offer some limited services, concludes the directory. (JDD)
