Regarding tutoring students with disabilities, you can head off many  
potential problems
by encouraging your disability services department to "front-load" their  
services to
incoming students by encouraging them to read 100 Things Every College  
With a Disability Ought to Know.  Especially pertinent for  learning 
Chapter 3  Leveling the Playing Field
Chapter 4  The Classroom Experience
Chapter 6  Success Strategies
Students can become empowered to find study groups, mentors, and web links  
self--help sites if they are given the information.  It's all included  in 
100 Things.
For tutor training, hundreds of institutions nationally use The Master  
It specifically pinpoints what tutors should and should not do to assist  
whether traditional, non-traditional, or with defined disabilities.   Most 
help students
to problem solve their own difficulties with the goal to make students  
versus dependent on tutoring.
Your situation is shared by many internationally.  It will prove  
interesting to see how
other colleagues handle this situation.
Hope this is helpful.
