Learning Technologies Management System (LiTMS): A Multidimensional Service Delivery Model for College Students with Learning Disabilities and ADHD
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability Volume 22, Number 2,
Today's college students are expected to utilize a variety of learning technologies to succeed in higher education. Students with learning disabilities (LD) and/or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD) can encounter barriers to equal access and effective learning in this new digital environment, including the development of proficiency with technology tools and self-regulation of attention while processing online information. Recognizing these trends, a research University team developed and piloted the Learning Technologies Management System (LiTMS). Service providers can implement the Principles of Universal Design for Instruction (UDI)[C] when providing academic supports with LiTMS. This new model is presented and illustrated with a hypothetical but increasingly common vignette. A concluding discussion articulates ways in which LiTMS can be used with "all" students in a variety of campus offices and can serve as the focus of future research. (Contains 1 figure.)
