    I am a university student having a verified disability. I take my quizzes and exams inside a learning center rather than the class. I discovered today that my prof gives disabled students special tests he does not provide the another students. Is the fact that legal? Apparently also, he grades them individually. What must i do about this? I were not impressed with an instructor once and that he retaliated against me they hold all of the cards…

    There are all kinds of federal rules and regulations that require schools to accommodate the needs of disabled students. Wouldn’t it be better if that was left to the individual states?

    I receive middle-rate care component of DLA for Asperger’s syndrome and other learning difficulties. Also I have a disabled students grant of around £6000 per year to cover costs of a mentor, note-taker and laptop. I’m going to university in september and wondered if anyone knew whether I can get some support with the costs of accomodation or whether this is solely for people with a disability affecting their mobility.

    I’m going to become a Special Education teacher for disabled students for the elementary school after I graduate High school and College. But I have know Idea on what kinds of questions to expect. So please can some one give me some example question tonight so I can start practicing?

    All my life of going to school, I have never seen a teacher take rise during a bully. I remember those times when other students made disrespectful remarks towards physcially disabled students! And teachers do nothing about it. And honestly the school was not a bad school at all but is it against school policy for teachers to do something about it?

    And it’s ironic how they encourage you to stand up for bullied victims but when they see it happening they don’t even do it theirselves?

    Does your college enforce the mission statment regarding disabled students?
    If the mission statement is not enforced what can be done so that all students achieve including the learning disabled?

    I am a home schooled senior, have health issues and I would like to apply for a college scholarship. I was born with sickle cell anemia (http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/sickle-cell-disease-topic-overview)
    I suffered several strokes as well and I have an immune deficiency.
    What scholarships are available for disabled students that have health problems such as these?

    My main questions are
    What are some reasonable goals for an intellectual disabled student on an IEP?
    What if a parent has been contacted consistently for an IEP, the IEP meeting team meets without him/her present, and that parent wants to take out a lawsuit?
    If the goals on an IEP do not seem to be effective for the student, and this is noticed immediately, can his/her IEP be amended within a month?

    Are there any laws in texas that protect a disabled student (behavioral problems) from missing recess? Student often receives lunch detention for bad behavior due to disability so he doesn’t get to go to recess after eating. How many times can they do this within a year? The behavior is a manifestation of his disability. Lunch detention i sin the IEP but they refuse to take it out. I have tried. Can they legally continue to this?

    Classes full of people who don’t want to learn anything. They just talk or annoy the teacher and pick on the disabled student for doing their work.
    I find it really unfair, as those special need students are already at a disadvantage. Have to be in a dumbed down class full of immature people who make it harder to concentrate.

    When I open my dance studio, I want to offer a dance class for mentally disabled children under 18. It wouldn’t be extravagant dancing obviously, it would be basic movements. When I was in school we used to work with the disabled students in our school and make dances with them and they absolutely loved it. Do you need a special certification to do that?

    Is my brother qualified for a disabled students allowance if he’s epileptic. It’s fairly well controlled, but he still has frequent auras.

    He got a computer last year from the uni. Does that change things?

    I have a chance to take a job teaching profound and severe mentally disabled students. However, I do have some concerns. I’ve met teachers who teach these students and it seems like all they do is feed, change diapers, and lift kids in and out of wheel chairs. What has been your experience with this? What are your biggest challenges and do you feel bogged down with the amount of paper work that comes with working with these children?

    The public schools are now open to the diabled students. There won’t be anymore diabled special schools anymore. They will be learning in their own age level grade with the non-disabled students. What do you think of this?

    This is in Florida.

    I have a mild depression, ocd and gen anxiety.

    I am in the student disabled program at my college, but I do not have any accomidations because I chose not to. I want to get out of the program because I don’t want anybody knowing about my disabilities/mental disorders.

    So do my professors know that I am a disabled student, even though I have not said anything?

  20. Tessie March 24, 2013 at 7:18 pm #

    My sister came home and told me that everyday at lunch time, she rushes to the restrooms to line up. Every time, the mentally disabled students nonchalantly walk up to the front of the line and cut. Is this right? Should they have to wait in line like the others or do they have the right to go upfront? I have a relative who is mentally disabled that waits in line. I would like to hear some opinions. Please no rudeness!

    I work with disabled students at my school’s Best Buddies club, though none of them are deaf or mute, I still want to try to learn sign language on my own.
    If after a year or two of hard work learning sign language, and I’m able to create conversations and use it fluently in real life, do you think this will impress the colleges when I list it down on my college app?

    I work for a public college (government entity), and we transcribe textbooks into various formats for our disabled students. Typically, we require that the student show that they have purchased the actual textbook before we can give them the alternate, which makes sense. However, we also use a (non-profit) service called Learning Ally for our audio books. They require a small yearly fee (per student), and provide unlimited access to their database.

    If the student goes through Learning Ally, do we still need them to purchase the physical copy of the book? Nothing in 17 USC 121 (relevant copyright law) seems to indicate that a physical copy is needed in ANY case, only that we are authorized and it’s only for students with documented disabilities, both of which are true.

    So in the interest of fairness and not making things difficult for students:
    a) are physical copies required at all? or
    b) is Learning ally is a special exception?

    I’m taking the GRAD (state test) and I wanted to know if there is a other option for me since I am special ed and I’m extremely slow and can’t remember basics.

    Like how do disabled kids graduate from high school? There are some who will never be able to pass this test! Do high schools kick out every special ed/disabled student they have since they can’t pass their test?

    Is there any site that’s like Facebook, but where I can meet many young people that are disabled some how? Like me, I have Autism, learning disability. I don’t mean disabled as in old and can’t walk an all. Like I go to a collage with disabled students, is there a site where I can meet more students like that?

  27. Joye March 26, 2013 at 10:44 am #

    I live in Pakistan and have a 17 year old younger brother who has learning difficulties, including dyslexia, ADD etc. In our country, there are no schools/institutes that can offer special education/therapy catering to his needs. Most are for severely disabled students. I want to know if there’s any organization in UK that can offer such services or atleast advice me towards right direction? It can be any school, institute or any charity organization? I just need the help urgently.

    I have a disabled child that wants to go to college to be a vet. Are there programs and grants available to help with the cost or provide assistance for disabled students to find colleges that can meet their needs?

  29. Isidro March 26, 2013 at 4:33 pm #

    I think they should be placed in separate classrooms (separate from the disabled students) in the regular mainstream school. There is NO need for alternative schools. Alternative schools are just a bunch of snobbish mainstream schools that think they are better than everyone else. At least private schools don’t do this. They have a different curriculum for a different reason. But alternative schools don’t.

    I think that this is VERY inappropriate. This is against the “least restrictive environment”. Alternative schools does not justify as the appropriate program for them. They are simply schools for ALL children to attend. Alternative schools provide a choice either attending the mainstream school OR nontraditional school. Alternative schools do not meet the needs of special needs students. And I am so angry whenever schools suggest alternative schools as the BEST placement for behaviorally challenged children.

  30. Geneva March 27, 2013 at 1:58 am #

    There is always help for students with disabilities. What about those who don’t have disabilities but are still failing in school? How does the school help these students? Do they take self-contained classes and the teacher there would just give them different work than disabled students?

  31. Marcellus March 28, 2013 at 2:26 am #

    The college say its persistent or habitual misconduct but never reported it to campus police, never got a writen notice, or reprimand. The misconduct never states date/time of this incident(s). I have to have a response to have a hearing in five (5) days and says students can only have counsel in expulsion hearing. I fear of being blind-sided by their complexity of their policies. Being a disable student that is registered with the department that deals with disable students, can I have representation or counsel ? My disable student center does not deal with these issues, only accomadations.

    I was wondering what items can a dyslexic student claim through the Disabled Student Allowance.

    I have extremely bad organisational skills and was also wondering could you claim for items such as an IPhone or IPod Touch.
    Would help if you read the question saying What items and not just answer no.

    I’m doing a project on what assistance the government is required to provide to disabled students in CA public schools, and what responsibilities fall to the child’s guardian. I’m really just looking for resources that could point me in the right direction, but if you have experience with this I’ll take all the input I can get. Thanks!

    I’m specifically looking for the numbers of disabled students enrolled in the Florida public university system over the past several years. More specifically, I want to see how much, if at all, the population of students with disabilities at Florida State University has grown over the past 4 years but Ive been searching for hours and will take anything I can get at this point.

    There are several suits at a various school districts now trying to keep various traditions that strengthen and enable the general student body. Some of these traditions are being attacked to “not offend” or “harm” a weak and disabled minority.

    For example, a student has a “disability” the forces a dietary change for the entire student body. Another one is that the disabled student goes into conniptions if a certain sound or visual sequence is done that they will normally be exposed to in general public life. This can be argued to the point of servicing this disabled is a menace to the student body.

    I’m considering transferring to Oakland University (in Michigan). A major consideration is how well they treat disabled students. My current school is terrible, won’t provide any assistance and harasses me about my guide dog (I’m blind).
    Does anyone know if the disability office at OU handles things better?

    I am looking at Cal State colleges and have narrowed it down to mostly Sonoma, Monterey Bay, Humboldt, and East Bay, but I have High Functioning Autism. It does not usually interfere too much, however I do think it is enough of one for me to focus on finding a college with a Disabled Student Service. Thank you.

    He’s mostly able to follow simple sentences, but gets distracted easily. Are most special-ed students of his capacity capable of lying for their gain? I hate to think he could be, but he has a small crush on me (he’s called me cute, asked for a kiss, asked me if I loved him). He told me that my crush has a girlfriend; could he have done so to turn me off my crush? He’s also told me not to call my crush because he’s “busy”. I have little experience with mentally disabled students, and I feel terrible for even thinking he could be lying, but I’d really just like to know if it’s likely.

    I just want to get your feedback, because it’s a bit of a touchy subject. I have chronic anxiety and reoccuring depression. I have come to notice that I can apply to teacher’s college as a disabled student. The benefits in this would be 1) I could be open about it 2) It would be easier to get into teacher’s college because there are spaces set aside for disabled applicants. The obvious downfall would be the stigma that comes with it. What do you guys think? Thanks.

    One of my jobs is to integrate these two student bodies and I was wondering if you had any ideas for safe activities for students and disabled students (mentally and some physically too) to do together?

    Any sincere advice will be taken gratefully. Thank you.

    Disabled Students Program and Services in my college offer classes to help disabled students with some subjects.

    Course Name : SDEV-905
    Course Title : Supportive Learning in Mathematics
    Course Description : Course provides specialized instruction and tutoring to individuals and small groups in basic mathematics. Although this course is designed for students with disabilities as certified through diagnostic testing, all students are welcome to enroll. Support strategies to minimize the effects of the disability in the academic setting are presented to maximize students’ effectiveness in mainstream classes.

    Course Name : SDEV-906
    Course Title : Supportive Learning in Reading
    Course Description : This multi-sensory phonics course provides specialized instruction and tutoring to individuals and small groups in reading. Although this course is designed for students with disabilities as certified through diagnostic testing, all students are welcome to enroll. Support strategies to minimize the effects of the disability in the academic setting are presented to maximize students’ effectiveness in mainstream classes.

    Are these classes hard? What type of math do they teach?

    He has general educational difficulties and general behavior problems. There is no iep, report card record, or attendance record available at this time. How do I assess the student?

  55. Gillian May 18, 2013 at 4:58 pm #

    I’ll suggest three alternatives: (1) Spend the same amount of money on each student, regardless of the student’s ability; (2) Spend the most money per student on gifted and talented students, then on students of average ability, and least on mentally disabled students; or (3) Spend the most money per student on mentally disabled students, then on students of average ability, and least on gifted and talented students.

    Other options are fine, but I’d like for you to explain and justify your answer.

    As well as charging up to £105.00 per week for a room on campus [in the West Midlands for god’s sake not even London!!!] and they charge disabled students £145 a year to park on campus.

    It seems they call it Warwick University PLC for a good reason!

    My son at age 20 today has a mental/psychological disability. After suffering from years of OCD, he has sought numerous academic support from the Office of Special Services here in Orange County just recently. He goes to 5 different colleges; but his main school, school A, has given him problems with disability accommodations. All the other schools and their disability accommodations went very smoothly without going through the specific details of his OCD. All of the schools have already verified his disability; however apparently school A seems to be giving him an hard time to be accommodated. Today, after a failed attempt last semester to accommodated , he asked school A’s disability office again if he may have testing accommodations. The disability interviewer began dangling on issues of his conditions; and threatened to not accommodate him if he did not know the finer details of his OCD. His disability has been already verified through numerous health agencies in our area that both the federal and state government recognizes his disability. My question is: Can colleges refuse disability accommodations to a psychologically disabled student if the student does not give the specific torturing details of his/her ailment even if already verified?

    My friend and his wife used to be hardcore partiers. They have since been clean for a few years and want to start living regular lives. Their challenge has been finding an apartment with their low, but steady, income. He’s also a temporarily disabled student. Can anyone help them out or give them any tips to finding somewhere decent? What type of things should they tell prospective landlords and property managers. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    I am raising money for a school for severely disabled students and am wondering who the best celebrities are to ask for donations of $$ or items. We need to raise a lot of money and are even thinking of a benefit concert to help the school get the equipment they need. I’d appreciate any ideas….

    Can you tell me what you recall from middle school – high school years? Were there any special education students in your class? Were they bullied? Did you see one / few of them get bullied because of whatever affects their communication or the issues they had because of their special needs? Did you ever see students deliberately bully a special needs student who was intellectually / learning disabled? How did the student(s) react to the situation?
    There are an overwhelming number of students with intellectual / learning disabilities who become victims of bullying (more than race, clothing, weight, etc.), because they aren’t typical students, are below average intelligence, and have difficulty fitting in with typical non-disabled students.
    Bullies! They can never fathom the fact that harboring hateful intent puts their victims at greater risk; can they?
    Imagine bullying someone like Rain Man! What would they do then? You’d never know!

    if i am claiming disabled students allowance at university for sciatica, clinical depression and OCD, could they possibly pay for a private therapist recommended by my GP and family with a garuntee that i will be restored to a stable mental health state within a month?

    because they will put £20,000 a year towards a carer so in replacement of a carer and for the fraction of the price i can be fixed very quickly.
