Adults with Learning Disabilities

14 weeks Course

Overview

This course will help you gain insight into the abilities, needs and issues of adults with learning disabilities in an educational or training setting, and society as a whole. You will gain general knowledge and awareness of the various exceptionalities with a primary focus on understanding adults with learning disabilities. Strategies and skills are explored so that educators/trainers can provide appropriate modifications and accommodations to course content, delivery and evaluation, to ensure that all learners have an opportunity to be successful.

You may enroll in a Continuing Education course at Canadore College if you are 19 years of age or older or if you have earned an Ontario Secondary School Diploma/Ontario Secondary School Graduation Diploma or equivalent.

Most college level courses require textbooks; textbooks are not included in the course fees. It is the student’s responsibility to purchase any required textbooks.

Textbooks are available at the Campus Shop for in class, Contact North, and iLearn/D2L courses. The Campus Shop does not carry most OntarioLearn textbooks. OntarioLearn textbooks can be purchased at www.textnet.ca.

Learning outcomes represent culminating demonstrations of learning and achievement. In addition, learning outcomes are interrelated and cannot be viewed in isolation of one another. As such, they should be viewed as a comprehensive whole. They describe performances that demonstrate that significant integrated learning by graduates of the program has been achieved.
