TITLE: FALLING THROUGH THE CRACKS: A SCREENING ASSESSMENT FOR STUDENT VETERANS WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES
MAJOR PROFESSOR: Dr. Thomas Upton
This paper examines historical context of military intelligence assessment, post secondary challenges of student veterans, student veterans with a learning disability and campus support for veterans with learning disabilities and to facilitate an intervention by using a C-SIP style screener survey which can be a useful tool for a Rehabilitation Counselor. Facilitating student veteran success is tantamount in the face of a burgeoning student veteran population which faces academic challenges unique to their group.
