This session will focus on how faculty support students with intellectual disability enrolled in their college courses. Two professors share their experiences in supporting students with intellectual disability enrolled in college success and leadership classes and the importance of having a support system in place to aid our students inside and outside the classroom. Adjusted assignments and assessments will be discussed that support students’ development. Join us to explore the challenges and rewards involved in engaging students with intellectual disability enrolled in college courses.
This topic area includes resources related to supports provided to students by individuals, such as Peer Mentors, Educational Coaches, Ambassadors, tutors, etc.
