Students with Learning Disabilities in Education: Managing a Disability.
Barga, Nancy K.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v29 n4 p413-21 Jul 1996
This study of nine college students with learning disabilities examined success and disability management factors. The students reported experiencing labeling, stigmatization, and gatekeeping throughout their school years. Positive coping strategies included relying on benefactors, implementing self-improvement techniques, and utilizing particular academic strategies and management skills. The negative coping strategy of avoiding disability disclosure created tension. (Author/DB)
