Learning Disabilities: A Guide for Ontario University Faculty

Published: January 30, 2009

Academic Colleague Paper: Dr. John Logan (Carleton University) explores the reasons behind accommodation for students living with learning disabilities, and how faculty can make accommodations for students living with learning disabilities.

The Academic Colleagues Working Paper Series consists of short papers on academic issues prepared by COU’s Academic Colleagues. The topics chosen by the caucus of Academic Colleagues are championed by one or two colleagues. Although drafts of each paper are discussed by the full caucus, the final version of the paper represents the opinions of the authors and not a consensus reached by the Colleagues. The authors present their paper to the full Council as a matter of interest and to stimulate discussion. The papers as finalized do not represent COU policy. They are simply a mechanism for investigating and opening discussion on matters of interest to the Colleagues and the Council— and their readership at large.
