Changes
In Learning
Disability
Laws
by Philippa L. Jenkins
Recent interpretations of federal
laws affecting classroom instruction
are having a definite effect on educa-
tion of those with learning disabilities.
Federal law states that an institution
must make “reasonable accommoda-
tions” for disabled students. For St.
Philip’s these accommodations in-
clude extended test times, oral ad-
ministration of tests, the use of
calculators in a class which would not
normally allow such usage, tape
recording lectures, allowing note-
takers, interpreters and/or facilitators
to assist a disabled student during
class time, special seating and other
“reasonable” assistance.
Measuring a disabled students pro-
gress in the classroom is of major con-
cern to the Department of Educational
Support. For disabled students,
modifications in ordinary testing pro-
cedures may have to be made in order
to be valid. A disability such as a hear-
ing impairment may interfere with the
students ability to deal with the
testing, instruction, materials, or the
mode of response. An educator may
need to modify or adapt his testing
procedures to accommodate the
disabled student. However, academic
standards must not be compromised.
Testing results must be valid and com-
parable to those of other students in
the class. Modifications to testing
material must be consistent and fair
so as not to give disabled students a
competitive edge, but rather eliminate
a competitive disadvantage. A grade
of “B” should carry the meaning no
matter which student earns it.
Joannis K. Flatley, Director of
Educational Support Services, offers
one simple suggestion to students
with learning disabilities or students
experiencing extreme difficulty with
classes and that is to ASK FOR HELP!
“It is the students responsibility to br-
ing his or her special needs to the at-
tention of the instructor. Students
with disabilities that cannot readily be
seen, such as a hearing impairment,
may be reluctant to approach a faculty
member concerning test adaptations,
but it is in his best interest that he
does.
In cases where a student is be-
coming overly frustrated with a
that is to ask for help. Seek help first
by speaking to someone in the educa-
tional support office. Screening and a
battery of tests may identify a student
as an individual with a learning
disability or simply someone needing
to reassess his study habits and seek
the help of a tutor.”
DOETRY
THE ULTIMATE FANTASY
By Jesse Tello
Who opened the door that let me
escape
Releasing the horror of my sub-
conscious state
Freeing the anger that unleashes the
late
Blood spattered fantasies that deter-
mine your fate
Life’s but a dream that battles reality
Can’t stop the screams that torture
my sanity
Caught in the act the ultimate fan-
tasy
Gotta keep running away from my
destiny
How did things ever get to be this
way
Lost in a cloud filled purple haze
Fifteen years later no one to blame
No turning back I must forge ahead
The door must be shut that is just up
the hall
And lock in the voices that a distant
past calls
Where good battles evil winner take
all
Lock in the fantasies in the room
with no walls.
LIFE IN THE FREE WORLD
by Jesse Tello
Newspaper headlines remind us all
It’s great to be living in the free
world
Drugs and violence life on death row
Prison overcrowding early parole
Innocent victims young and old
Caged in society justice unserved
A nuclear god and government con-
trol
Covert operations morality ignored
Sex scandals diseases and video
porn
Great traditions of the free world
Life in a society where we're free we
are told
Death is the only freedom I know
