Examining the Lived Experience of Students with Reading Comprehension Learning Disabilities and the Perceived Value of the Accommodations Received
Dodge, Katie M.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of Toledo
Students with learning disabilities, including a reading comprehension learning disability, are attending higher education institutions at an increasing rate. As a result, higher education institutions will need to be prepared to accommodate these students, especially with those accommodations perceived as most valuable by the students who use them. This phenomenological study gave a voice to the lived experiences of eight Midwestern community college students diagnosed with a reading comprehension learning disability. Interviews with these students identified the perceived value of the accommodations they receive and how these accommodations contribute to their self-efficacy and perceptions of academic success. Study conclusions will provide institutions of higher education with knowledge as to the accommodations students diagnosed with a reading comprehension learning disability perceive as most valuable to their academic success.
