Learning to Learn and Teach Despite LD
Koch, Kourtland R.
TEACHING Exceptional Children Plus, v2 n3 Article 4 Jan 2006
A college professor relates his experiences of being diagnosed with learning disabilities while in high school, which affected his education, eventually making possible doctoral degree attainment. As a special education teacher and school psychologist, he cites the challenge of meeting post-secondary obstacles in transition planning for students with special needs. The author emphasizes the key role of his mentors who have given guidance in his educational and professional life. The importance of long-term mentoring support, advocacy, and social awareness for persons with learning disabilities is shared. Suggestions for teachers, professionals, and individuals with learning disabilities are included that pertain to services, accommodations, and the ability to ensure that each individual has a proper perspective of the parameters of LD.
