Characteristics of students with disabilities 1. Ted is fifth grade boy in your class. He is slow and shows language difficulties but is  pleasant to work with and willing to try. He has below average level reading skills  and his IQ is 75. Sometimes, he says inappropriate things and does not always greet  people or pay attention to what others are saying. He does, though, become frustrated  rather easily when unable to understand. Specifically, what changes would you make  to help this child succeed in class and improve his interpersonal relations? 2. Greg is 16 years old but is functionally illiterate. His level of skill development is not  an accurate reflection of his cognitive capabilities. Although he can’t read a book, he  is able to comprehend the delicate interaction of the characters and events if he sees  the movie or TV drama. During elementary school, Greg was a shy introspective  child, but as his academic and social failure became more severe, he reacted by  striking out at others. During the school day, Greg spends a lot of time daydreaming  and doodling. He often sits in the back of the room, attempting to be as innocuous as  possible. He rarely participates actively in class activities and almost always appears  to be disorganized and disoriented.   3. Nancy is an eighth grade student who is poor in reading and her progress slow. She is  usually ignored by the rest of the classmates, although she has a few friends in the  class. Her social skills appear reasonable good. She is somewhat shy, but no more  than a few other children in my class without disabilities. Her IQ is normal but her  motivation is poor. Her past attempts at academic work were below average; she  became more withdrawn and rarely spoke, even when called on by teachers. She does not do her assignments, often does not pay attention to her work in school, daydreams

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
