Resources for Providing Services to Students with Disabilities


Individuals with disabilities vary in the impact of the disability on learning.  Different disability impacts or challenges, to learning, lead to different solutions or tips for success.  The Office of Disability Services (ODS) has created a list of "common impacts" and a corresponding list of "Top 10 TIPS" for success corresponding to each impact.

For example, if a student has difficulty concentrating, allowing the student to take a break and walk or stand and move for 1 minute may enhance concentration immediately following.  Below you will find links to our "Top 10 Tips" for each area of common challenges.  Each "Top 10" link will describe common characteristics of that impact, top strategies for learning with that impact, and will lead you to web links if you want to learn more about teaching or learning for a student with that behavioral challenge and/or disability.  We hope you find this information of value.
