This was not the only disruption with Albert that semester.
Many times I inwardly groaned in frustration at Alberts apparently irrelevant questions, late assignments, and misunderstanding of papers/activities.
Something as simple as encouraging students to word process all assignments can have a dramatic impact on a student with poor motor-coordination, which often makes his or her handwriting disorganized and difficult to read.
However, just because a teacher uses technology in the classroom does not mean the SLD student will benefit.
Students who, like Albert, do not learn well in traditional educational situations are often labeled learning disabled. Learning disabled literally means not able to learn and creates a stigma for learning disabled students.
An accommodation plan is made with each student, based on his or her needs, keeping in mind the goal of encouraging independence.Success in college depends on such factors as a students' motivation, intelligence, talent, problem-solving abilities, and hard work.
