identify an educational setting with which you are familiar. You may choose a formal (school, college, or training organization) or informal (community organization) setting. The setting you choose could be your own work setting or one you can access easily (for example, a church, library, or community center).
Next, review the section “Six Barriers to Success” on pages 63–83 in your course text.
Write a 2- to 3-page paper that addresses the following questions:
- What are the key characteristics of the educational setting? Who are the learners? Who are the instructors or facilitators? What kinds of learning experiences are provided?
- What barriers to success might people with disabilities encounter in this setting?
- Which of these barriers are the result of differences in the thinking and behavior of individuals?
- Which barriers could be removed or reduced, and how? What would need to be done to remove the particular barrier(s)?
