Resources for working with students with disabilities

Here are some resources based on my class presentation on working student students with disabilities.

First off, here’s where to find UF’s procedures at the Disability Resource Center: http://www.dso.ufl.edu/documents/drc/DRCInfoGuide.pdf.

Second, here’s the citation for the ethnography on students with learning disabilities that I used in my presentation: 

Stage, F. and Milne, N. (1996) Invisible Scholars: Students with Learning Disabilities. The Journal of Higher Education.  Vol 67 (4). p.426-445.

You can find this article, and the others below, online through JSTOR.
