Abstract

This article is a systematic analysis and synthesis of published research from 1985-2000 recommending or reporting on postsecondary education services for students with learning disabilities. Twenty-six articles met the criteria of recommending services or describing services presently available. The 11 program factors examined were: definition of learning disability, characteristics of adult learners, type of institution, special admission procedures, assessment services, program accommodations, support services, instructional adjustments, instructional staff training, direct service staff training, and program evaluation. Implications and recommendations for postsecondary program development are presented.
