Professional Staff Congress of the City Univ. of New York, NY.
This handbook is designed to provide City University of New York faculty with practical information and suggestions to help them meet the needs of disabled students in their classrooms. An overview on teaching students with disabilities is provided, followed by discussions of specific topics including coping with mobility and hand-function impairments, hearing impairments, and learning disabilities, working with students who are psychologically impaired or speech impaired, and working with students with AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and seizure disorders. In addition, information is provided on where to go for assistance in teaching disabled students. The handbook provides help in revising untrue perceptions about the handicapped, and covers specific classroom techniques to assist the instructor in properly teaching the handicapped student. Specific suggestions are made including identifying the disabled student prior to the start of the class, considerations regarding attendance and promptness, the need for classroom adjustments, testing and evaluation, and student note taking.
