Accommodating the Learning Disabled Student: Building a Learning-Conducive Classroom in Postsecondary Writing Courses
Date of Graduation
Master of Arts in Writing
Research shows that the most common deficiency found among all learning disabled (LD) students is in their reading and writing skills. Elementary, secondary, and postsecondary instructors need to educate themselves about the types of LD and the types of programs that are offered to LD students. We also need to be aware of the emotional problems LD students encounter throughout education and aware of teaching strategies we can use in postsecondary writing classrooms to ensure our students have the same opportunities to succeed in postsecondary institutions as their non-learning disabled (NLD) counterparts.
