Limited Capacity seats available

The reason why I have chosen this topic is because I work as an Instructional Associate for Disability Students Program and Services program Orange Coast College, California. I work closely with students who have learning disabilities and am very passionate about their overall educational success. This presentation will focus on students with learning disabilities and most prominent educational barriers that they come across in post-secondary education. Some of the most dominant ones pertain to: inadequate accommodations provided to students with learning disabilities, stigma, and faculty's responsiveness to accommodation process. The information presented on this poster will be based on the research and personal stories.
