Oct 26, 2018 4:30pm ‐ Oct 26, 2018 5:30pm

Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00


Disability services are evolving. Some offices have reinvented themselves with new names, more central locations, and greater web visibility. Yet data suggest that students are still unwilling to tap into DS services. This session highlights some fundamental inadequacies of DS models and challenges participants to rethink DS services of the future.

Learning Objectives:

  • ACCOMMODATIONS: Identify the critical elements in a disability document that will support the accommodation requests for students with learning disabilities.
  • ADULT: Discover the issues related to post-secondary language instruction for students with dyslexia and related language learning disabilities
  • ADULT: Examine research findings and implications for practice relevant to adults with dyslexia.
