Information about at Florida State University, Support Services for people with Dyslexia

August 11, 2011 in Information About Support Services for people with Dyslexia

As part of the ongoing discussion inside of Dyslexic in America, we have dedicated a special section to colleges and university with Strong support Services for people with dyslexia and other disabilities. I have sent out a request for information from each of the institutions we have begun two explore; I will be posting the responses from each individual institution as they come in.

1.      Contact information for student support services or institutional
specialists trained in the area of dyslexia?

FSU does not have anyone specifically identified to work solely with students with reading disorder (e.g. dyslexia) but we have professionals who work with students all types of disabilities including learning disabilities (reading disorder/dyslexia).

2.      Number of students admitted to college or university every year?

Admissions could assist with this information or visit http://ir.fsu.edu/.

a.      academic year 2007 2008
b.      academic year 2006 2000
c.      Academic year — 2008 — 2009
d.      academic year 2009 — 2010
e.      academic year 2010 — 2011

3.      Number of students admitted to college or university with dyslexia

We do not track the number of students with disabilities admitted to the University.
a.      academic year 2007 2008
b.      academic year 2006 2000
c.      Academic year — 2008 — 2009
d.      academic year 2009 — 2010
e.      academic year 2010 — 2011

4.      List the top five programs for all students at college or
university?

This may be found at http://ir.fsu.edu/.
a.      academic year 2007 2008
b.      academic year 2006 2000
c.      Academic year — 2008 — 2009
d.      academic year 2009 — 2010
e.      academic year 2010 — 2011

5.      List the top five programs for all students with dyslexia?

Our students take courses and enroll in program based on their interests and abilities rather than their disability.  We do not track students with disabilities in major either.
a.      academic year 2007 2008
b.      academic year 2006 2000
c.      Academic year — 2008 — 2009
d.      academic year 2009 — 2010
e.      academic year 2010 — 2011

6.      List your overall retention rate for all students?

Alice Earp in Undergraduate Studies may be able to answer this question or visit http://ir.fsu.edu/.

7.      List your overall retention rate for students with dyslexia?

Again, we do not track retention based on specific disabilities.
a.      academic year 2007 2008
b.      academic year 2006 2000
c.      Academic year — 2008 — 2009
d.      academic year 2009 — 2010
e.      academic year 2010 — 2011

8.      Percentage of students that graduate within five years?
Alice Earp in Undergraduate Studies may be able to answer this question or visit http://ir.fsu.edu/.
a.      academic year 2007 2008
b.      academic year 2006 2000
c.      Academic year — 2008 — 2009
d.      academic year 2009 — 2010
e.      academic year 2010 — 2011

9.      Percentage of students with dyslexia that graduate within five
years?

Again, we do not track retention based on specific disabilities.  However, we can state that the retention and graduation rates for students with disabilities (in general) is at par with the general student body.

 
a.      academic year 2007 2008
b.      academic year 2006 2000
c.      Academic year — 2008 — 2009
d.      academic year 2009 — 2010
e.      academic year 2010 — 2011

10.     Number of trained or certified staff assisting with learning
disabilities?

FSU does hire professionals to work with specific disability type; rather, we hire professionals who are competent to work with all student population and who have appropriate background to work with students in the postsecondary environment.

a.      academic year 2007 2008
b.      academic year 2006 2000
c.      Academic year — 2008 — 2009
d.      academic year 2009 — 2010
e.      academic year 2010 — 2011

11.     Please list the methods of remediation?

FSU does not remediate.

12.     Please list technology resources?

We have an array of technology (software and hardware) to meet the needs of students.  Our technology resources are current and up to date.

13.     Statement about your institution and the philosophy’s that you
follow, to ensure support services for students with disabilities?

FSU’s philosophy is full inclusion and empowerment.  We adopt the social justice model of service.  We try to design our program, services, and resources universally, to meet the needs of a wide range of users and make corrections to our environment as much as possible.

14.     Date and time lines for admissions and other criteria documentation
needed for assistance I.E. (IEP, psychology reports etc). ?

Date of testing is not what is important for FSU because we believe that disability is a characteristic that cannot be outgrown, but rather, it is a characteristic that one can develop coping strategies to ameliorate.  But we can only use adult normed testing as we are an adult setting and we accommodate the functional limitations resulting from the disability and consider what, within, our environment might put the student at a disadvantage.
15.     Any links, photographs and information that you would wish for me to
share with followers?

Information about at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey Support Services for people with Dyslexia

August 10, 2011 in Information About Support Services for people with Dyslexia

As part of the ongoing discussion inside of Dyslexic in America, we have dedicated a special section to colleges and university with Strong support Services for people with dyslexia and other disabilities. I have sent out a request for  information from each of the institutions we have begun two explore; I will be posting the responses from each individual institution as they come in.

Question #1:

Kathy Loder-Murphy—732-932-6725 or lodmurph@echo.rutgers.edu

Margee Greenberg—732-932-2180 or margee@echo.rutgers.edu

 

Question #2

We do not have data for 2007-08.

The attached spreadsheet shows the total number of students with dyslexia served by our office in 2008-9, 2009-10, and 2010-11.

 

Question #3

The university does not ask students to disclose disability status during the admissions process; thus, we cannot respond to this item.

 

Question #4

The Office of Disability Services does not collect or have such data. I’ll request this information through Institutional Research, and if it is available, I will pass it on to you.

 

Question #5

The attached spreadsheet shows how many students have majors in specific subject areas.

 

Question #6

University-wide, the retention rate for first-year undergrads is approximately 91% for the 2008 cohort (the most recent available).

.

 

Question #7

The Office of Disability Services does not have such data currently available. With the new school year upon us, and our offices moving during the Holiday Season, it is unlikely that we will have the opportunity to collect this data before June 2012.

 

Question #8

Five year data is not available.  The six year rate for undergraduate graduation is 72.7% for the Fall 2003 cohort (the most recent available).  From page 46 of Rutgers Factbook 2010-2011.

 

Question #9

The Office of Disability Services does not have such data currently available. With the new school year upon us, and our offices moving during the Holiday Season, it is unlikely that we will have the opportunity to collect this data before June 2012.

 

Question #10

2007-08—1

2008-09—1

2009-10—2

2010-11—2

 

Question #11

The Office of Disability Services provides Academic Coaching to assist students with development of study and comprehension skills. The University Learning Centers provide tutorial support for specific content.

 

Question #12

The Office of Disability Services uses a host of technologies including the Kurzweil, JAWS,  and Smart Pens.  In addition the institution has a loan agreement with the NJ Adaptive Technology Center, where the University may borrow necessary software/hardware on a short-term basis, and determine if such items should be purchased in the future.

 

Question #13

Our office employs a developmental and inclusive approach with our students, and a collaborative approach with our colleagues to ensure that eligible students have access to the information, technology and support needed to facilitate their academic and personal development as members of the Rutgers community.

 

Question #14

The Office of Disability Services is not involved in the admissions process.  Students may request accommodations at any time.  Go to our website found at: http://disabilityservices.rutgers.edu/

Click on the link titled, “Student & Coordinator Manual”

Go to Table of Contents, and see Section IV “Documenting a Disability” to learn what documentation is required.

 

Question #15
