I had two buddies in high school I helped graduate, both had FAS. They both played football with me, so they were high functioning, but both had a damn hard time learning. It was easiest for both of them to be read to and have help outlining the important information before they start reading or writing assingments. I used a lot of visual aid, and really just sat down with them and read out loud.Most of the time I'd end up getting the pages photocopied so we could run a highlighter through the stuff we really needed to go through. Now remember, these were high school football players, it was really difficult for them to ask me specifically as one of their peers to help them, but they felt they were being treated like they were handicapped. I'm friends with both of them to this day, one graduated out of North West Linesmen College, and the other is a diesel mechanic in the Bremerton Shipyard. Neither one of them is handicapped, someone just had to help them learn HOW they learn. I don't know if this point of view helped, but I thought I'd share my story!
