      The following is a list comprised for students with Aspergers, ADHD, and bipolar disorders.

      • giving them more time to work through things
      • allowing them to work in a quieter, more distraction free environment
      • not requiring them to do “team” based acitivities
      • breaking larger assignments into smaller, more manageable pieces
      • working with them one-on-one to review material and sticky points
      • recognizing quickly when they are overwhelmed and starting into “avoidance” behavior
      • giving oral exams and assignments when writing is a challenge

      (Special thanks to Diane Doser, University of Texas, El Paso, for initiating this list)

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks for initiating this list, and to Diane Doser as well!

      I wonder if there is a way to add other invisible disabilities to this list, for example, depression and anxiety disorders, learning disabilities, or cognitive disabilities? Thank you so much for taking this into consideration!
