Information for Instructors


This section offers information and suggestions regarding ways to instruct that will benefit students with disabilities. Each of us tends to teach in ways that are most familiar and comfortable for us. The choices we make about what and how we present ourselves to students both personally and intellectually depend on our personalities and preferences.

Professor and students graphicSometimes, the natural match between teacher and learner is excellent. Other times, the fit is not as good. Students with disabilities need a better teacher-learner fit than other students because they have less flexibility in their information processing capabilities or in other qualities that affect their learning.The information presented in this section is intended to build a better understanding of characteristics of students with disabilities and provide some instructional guidelines that will support their learning. It is just a beginning!

We welcome suggestions from faculty regarding instructional approaches they have tried to help students with disabilities that have worked out well. This site will be updated regularly to include your suggestions.
