Slide32 l.jpg
Mark inclusive way possible without compromising the essential components identified?

I am a 19 year old male with learning disabilities attending college.I rarely read except for the times that I am really interested in the subject matter.

When I need to read and study textbooks, I read out loud, tape myself, and play back the tape repeatedly.

I can get by with this method but I need a more efficient means to absorb what I read.

“What can I do to stop the insanity?”
