A guide to the instruction of students with disabilities is presented to enhance learning in a college or university setting. Various adjustments that can be made in the environment or in teaching style are suggested. The following categories of disabled students are addressed: blind students, partially sighted students, deaf or hearing-impaired students, students who use wheelchairs, learning disabled students, speech impaired students, students who have had an ostomy, students with spina bifida, students with multiple sclerosis, and students with muscular dystrophy. Specific topics include: the use of readers, brailled books, audio tape recorded books, and recent aids by blind students; test administration to blind students; the use of large print books, a closed-circuit tv magnifier, and large print typewriter for partially sighted students; the use of sign language, fingerspelling, hearing aids; self-carbon notetaking pads, interpreters, and captioned films by the hearing impaired or deaf; barriers to the student in a wheelchair and the need for a curb cut or ramp; information processing difficulties of the learning disabled student; and types of speech impairments and aids for persons who cannot speak at all. Hints for teachers to facilitate the participation of deaf and hard-of-hearing students in (and out of) the classroom and generalizations about the classroom needs of students who use wheelchairs are presented. A glossary of equipment and other terms, a chart of the American Manual Alphabet and the Braille Alphabet, and a list of resources for postsecondary educators are among the appendices. (Sw)

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph is an international overview of available information about the current status of rehabilitation efforts for the mentally ill. It served as a springboard for discussion at the Special Interest Group session at the Fourteenth World Congress of Rehabilitation International in Winnipeg, Canada, on June, 1980. The first part of the monograph introduces the international context of rehabilitation of the mentally ill and outlines the scope of the problem. In Part 2, two areas of interest to those working in rehabilitation of the mentally ill are surveyed: laws about mental illness and mental patients, rights and responsibilities, in various countries of the world; and rehabilitation procedures for treating the mentally ill in various cultures and countries. Part 3 suggests prospects for the future--collaborative efforts that could be made among nations and international organizations in disseminating information about rehabilitation procedures; and a summary of the needs of rehabilitation programs. A list of references is included. (Kc)
