Colleges for students with learning disabilities

August 27, 2012

Many students with learning disabilities have struggled throughout their education to be successful.  Some have been in schools that provided the support they needed, but others have found very little help.  School is not always fun for students with learning disabilities.  Many students have faced years of frustration.

When these same students begin to think about college, some are afraid to even consider the subject.  Since school has always been difficult for them, they aren’t sure they want to experience more academic challenges and possible failure.

Colleges understand that many students with learning disabilities are very bright, but they simply need to have a college education adapted to their learning styles.  However, it is up to the individual student to research schools and determine which ones actually do provide the support services that will allow them to succeed.  Often times a private college counselor has the expertise to help families find the right schools.

Some colleges and universities indicate they do provide support services for students with learning disabilities, but these vary a great deal from school to school.  Before compiling a college list, make sure you have checked out each school carefully.
