Reeves, Sandra; Turlington, Anita J.
This handbook is intended to provide Tri-County Technical College (TCTC) faculty and staff with strategies and resources for teaching and advising students in special populations as defined in the 1990 Perkins Act. Listed first are general tips for setting a positive tone. The remaining three sections discuss the characteristics of students with the following special needs and classroom/counseling strategies for meeting those needs: physical disabilities (mobility-impaired, hearing-impaired, and visually impaired students); learning disabilities (disabilities affecting the learning of oral, written, math, and study skills); and limited English speaking ability. Appendixes constituting approximately two-thirds of the handbook contain the following: lists of services for special needs students available at TCTC and in the surrounding community; list of books and videotapes available through the Partnership for Academic and Career Education (PACE) office; and a booklet from the HEATH Resource Center detailing national resources for adults with learning disabilities. Included in the booklet are the following: guidelines for assessing students' needs and locating professionals to conduct assessments; learning disabilities checklist; annotated lists of 56 resource organizations and 20 resource publications. A wide variety of resource organizations are represented, including national resource centers, literacy organizations, employment services/networks, information networks, and agencies/programs providing postsecondary training and residential housing.
