Disability Poll Results

Included here are the poll results to the question, "What disability do you see most often in your classes or programs?".  These results show a majority of members working with students with learning disabilities, followed in equal numbers by learners with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorders and Psychiatric Disabilities.  If you click on the image below, the poll results can be expanded to a full view.

What disability do you see most often in your classes or programs?

Dear Disability in Adult Education CoP,

In an effort to understand the population of students with disabilities that you work with, or would like to learn how to work with better, I am asking you to respond to this simple poll.  Please select the one disability category that best represents the students you have in your classes, or programs.  If you do not have students with disabilities, or are unaware of their documentation, please respond by selecting the category which you are most interested in learning how to serve in your program.

Thanks,                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Mike

What student disability populations are you most interested in discussing?


I am interested in finding out what student populations you are most interested in discussing.  I have started a poll below for members to use for this purpose.  Please select your most important disability category when completing this poll.

Thanks so much for sharing your interests.
