Developing specific learning strategies can help individuals with disabilities to pursue postsecondary education and training experiences by enhancing their learning and improving their understanding and retention of information. This checklist identifies some key skills needed to learn more effectively, optimize learning experiences, and achieve better results from learning experiences. These learning strategies can assist in postsecondary transition programs for students with cognitive disabilities, college or university degree programs, and vocational training programs. Additionally, these learning strategies can assist in personal learning, job training, and other life-long learning opportunities.
This checklist can be used to mark off skills as they are mastered, as a transition assessment for postsecondary education and training, and to develop Individualized Education Program goals for skills still to be mastered.
