Gio Accetturo's insight:

This program looks a little weird to me because it's based on a persons documents. But the "temporary physical, mental, or sensory disability" sentence pisses me off a bit because when have disabilities ever been temporary; NEVER! Plus the whole "planning accomodations" thing is getting ridiculous because of freaking documents. I don't see the point of this program if it just requires files about a students disability. I think that this program at Everett Community College is a bit of a let down.

Gio Accetturo's insight:

I kind of find the "have an IQ of 70 or above" to be a little insulting. The program is similar to the social communications class here at Jackson High School, but on a college level. If I wanted to discuss about nutrition, health, fitness, and/or personal finance; I would've taken different classes about those subjects. The upside is the extended time, which is perfect for people with ADD or ADHD. In the end, I think this program at Bellevue College is helpful to autistic people.

Gio Accetturo's insight:

I'm honestly shocked that this program helps students with all types of disabilities, that's a lot to work with. But I am curious of how they help people with psychological and/or emotional disabilities. Maybe I can learn a thing or two from other people that have other disabilities, because that'll be freaking awesome. The one-on-one tutoring definately sounds helpful, especially for people that have a hard time understanding the material. Over all, I think this program at Edmonds Community College might actually be pretty cool.
