First-year college students with LD often find themselves in over their head • Being proactive and taking charge of the situation can help avoid common problems • Strategies include accessing available services, developing good study habits, and managing your GPA College freshmen often find themselves face to face with unexpected challenges.

Students with learning disabilities (LD) are part of the largest and most rapidly expanding population of college students (Burgstahler & Moore, 2009; Garrison-Wade & Lehmann, 2009; Foley 2006; Chew, Jensen, & Rosen, 2009; Thomas, 2000). Current estimations show approximately one and a half million college students have a documented disability (Vasek, 2005). Every student learns differently, and those with learning disorders may find the average classroom environment intimidating, especially in college. But with proper accommodations,support and preparation, students with learning disorders can not only find success,but excel in higher education. Consider modifying the typical college pathway.

Four years away at college isn’t the only option available. Students might plan to start their postsecondary educa­tion at a community college and then transfer to a public or private 4-year college. Explore online courses.

There are many things you can do to ensure your own success. 10 Strategies for Success for Learning-Disabled College Students. 1. Research your disability.

Start out with the teacher using heavily mediated instruction, known as explicit instruction, then slowly begin to let the students acquire the skill, moving towards the goal of student mediated instruction. Success for the student with learning disabilities requires a focus on individual achievement, individual progress, and individual learning. Understanding learning disabilities and eliminating the stigma surrounding them is necessary for students to achieve success in and out of the classroom.

This guide defines and explores three of the most common learning disabilities among college students. Navigating College – One of the big tips we recommended for students with disabilities was to seek out to the experiences of other students with disabilities and learn from them. Navigating College is a network that introduces the experiences of autistic adults who have survived college and have now written about their experiences for the younger generation. Set the stage for learning by telling children why the material is important, what the learning goals are, and what the expectations are for quality performance.

Use specific language. Instead of saying, “do quality work,” state the specific expectations. For example, in a writing assignment, a teacher might grade based on correct punctuation, spelling, and the inclusion of specific points.

  • I’ve done a part of this before. I was not aware of this video before, but there was a test coming and I had to study fast. It was sorta like Panic Cramming, but its a more effective way. I had to connect the ideas and explain them what they are and what makes them important.

    I had somehow managed to retain the whole thing after the test for 2 weeks! 2 weeks I tell you. It was really scary that I still remember the information so irrelevant. I think it might be because of one of these methods to study effectively.

  • Were you referring to switching between the topics I study or just the idea I used to approach the problem? In regards to Math for example

  • Thank you! I agree with all of this. I’m glad some of the things included in the video were the things I did for my current revision. I thought because I wasn’t feeling slightly overwhelmed and was more chilled than I used to meant that i wasn’t doing enough. But i understand now that it’s definitely quality over quantity:)!

  • I’ve watched many study videos and this is the best. Not only do you talk about the techniques but you also give tips on how to apply them. This is super helpful. Thanks a lot!!

  • For the switching do I switch between the topics, or am I wrong and don’t know English.

    Also what is the difference between switching and connecting, also I’m sorry if my English is bad it’s not my first language, anyways thanks for the video ��

  • Not wasting time in college and spacing learning have especially helped me a lot! I never really feel like I am actually doing anything, but I get tons of stuff done. I highly recommend that everyone follows the tips mentioned in the video because they’ve helped me.

  • I’ve always struggled with school because I’ve always felt as if I didn’t know how to study properly. I’m 34 and I’m taking classes at the community college. This is amazing and thank you so much for taking the time to share this sort of information with the world.

  • If you thought this video was valuable, please give it a ‘thumbs up’ and leave a comment so other people will know it’s worth watching too. Thanks!

  • That’s such a creative way of explaining. I like these kind of videos. And your methods seem promising. Now I should just use them. Thanks.

  • Great video, really informative, that last one stunned me, and I had a big revelation. I will try my best to actually do this.
    By the way, do you guys have a different link to download the poster for the ANSWER method? For some reason the link in the description doesn’t want to be opened. (The file downloaded)

  • I’ve never been aware of my study style or styles rather before i started watching this but reaching the end of the video made me aware that I DO ALL OF THOSE TECHNIQUES DEPENDING ON THE SUBJECTS, it’s amazing because IT REALLY DOES WORK!!

  • This is really helpful.Amongst all the study videos this is the BEST.
    I have downloaded this videos. Please make more videos about studying.

  • Hey! This video was extremely helpful. I was just wondering if you could clarify some things for me. For the first tip, you say to review information from each class, starting a day later. Does this mean instead of reviewing the classes we learnt on that day, we wait until we finish our classes the next day and study those before we revise the ones from yesterday?

    I’m currently going to boarding school and the school systematically schedules our study sessions every day at the same times (only changing slightly on daylight savings). We get around an hour after school to chill and then we go to designated classrooms depending on our year group. We study for about an hour and 20 min, get another hour and a bit break, then back to the classrooms for another 3 hours, since we’re seniors.

    So that’s almost 4 and-a-half hours of study each day. I’m still trying to find a good approach to effectively apply these tips in this video without cramming, given the current circumstances. Wondering if you have any suggestions if it isn’t too much hassle? Thank you for your time and I appreciate you sharing these tips to allow fellow students to excel in their learning.

  • Excellent, I just finished the credentialing class’s at National University. And all these topics were covered in great detail. Nicely done! Thank you!

  • Thanks a lot. I teach secondary level and numbers 2, 3, and 4 work for me. For number 1, we make syllabi but only the main office really looks at them. The rest are university level.
