Learning disabled -- Education (Higher) -- United States;
The learning-disabled college student is a relatively recent topic in the history of postsecondary education. The passing of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 gives these students the opportunity to attend college and allows for the necessary accommodations needed to succeed. Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Public Law 93-112) requires that colleges make reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities so that they will not be discriminated against. "The accommodations are of three general types (1) the ways in which specific courses are taught, (2) use of auxiliary aids, and (3) modifications in program requirements" (Hallahan & Kauffman, 1997, p. 198).
