Faculty Guide: Instructing Students with Learning Disabilities


The Faculty Guide for instructors is part of a millennium project funded by the Learning Opportunities Task Force. This excellent guide is of great assistance to teachers instructing students with learning disabilities.

The guide is divided into five major sections. The first unit provides definitions and insights into understanding learning disabilities. The second unit explains the process of learning, and identifies the cognitive areas where learning breakdowns occur. Suggested strategies for the classroom in relation to persons with learning disabilities are presented in the third section. The fourth section discusses facilitating student-directed learning strategies. The fifth section provides a selection of technological resources on the Internet, a bibliography of related publications, and lists community associations who work with students with learning disabilities.

This incredibly informative guide is 67 pages in length. Authors Lana Rossi and

Elizabeth Skirving, collaborated with a number of people on this millennium project.
