The authors present the viewpoints of specialists from the college community and students with learning disabilities on the effectiveness of information and communication technologies (ICT). The article spotlights the findings of the second phase of a study conducted by the Adaptech Research Network with the cooperation of Dawson College, the CÉGEP André-Laurendeau, and the Collège Montmorency. Learning-disabled students seem less familiar with ICT than strong readers, while very weak readers are located somewhere between these two groups. Efforts to make students more aware of how to use ICT must therefore be initiated or pursued.
