College Survival Skills: Tips for Students with Disabilities To Increase College Success.
Washington Univ., Seattle.
This guide for college students with disabilities urges students to understand their disability and to utilize the college's office of disability services. It then suggests study skills and strategies that are paraphrased from interviews with similar prospective, current, or former students with disabilities. The 24 specific strategies are summarized in seven principles: (1) develop strategies, study skills and a network of support; (2) attend class; (3) arrive on time, pay attention, and participate in class discussions and activities; (4) talk to the instructor and ask questions; (5) complete and check all work and turn in neat and clear assignments; (6) monitor your progress and, if you begin to fall behind, ask for help; and (7) stay in contact with the office of disability support services and your professors. A list of suggested resources includes print materials, Web sites, and videotapes. (DB)
