This dissertation was qualitative with its case study methodology while quantitative in its content analysis. The researcher’s content analysis of the student development 100, 101, and, 108 course syllabi used a 22-point matrix, and concluded with recommendations for community colleges, instructors and student development course syllabi to best serve the academic needs of students with learning disabilities.
