Question: What areas of learning are affected with Learning Disabilities?



Answer Learning Disabilities encompass a wide range of functional limitations.  To be classified as Learning Disabled, one or more of the following could be affected:



     These students improve their success rate with appropriate accommodations.  Accommodations are designed to give these students an opportunity for success; equal to their non-disabled peers.

     Accommodations might include: the use of a spell-checker, a calculator, books on tape, a note-taker, tape recording class lectures and discussions, copies of lecture notes, extended time to complete assignments, testing in a distraction-free room.



I hope you have enjoyed the ADA Fact Sheet.  If you have specific questions you would like answered or need more information on a disability, please let me know.  I would appreciate your input.  And, thanks for your help in the educational plan for our ADA students taking courses at Western Wyoming Community College.
