Colorado Options: A Handbook of Post Secondary Services for Students with Learning Disabilities.
Adams, Lois; And Others
This guide for learning-disabled postsecondary students in Colorado was prepared from information obtained in a survey of 43 postsecondary schools and colleges in Colorado. An introductory section titled "Getting Started" explains the types of postsecondary schools, admissions policies, terminology, and types of services for learning-disabled students. Individual descriptions of 43 postsecondary schools provide information on the type of school, enrollment, housing availability, admissions and registration, identification and assessment of learning- disabled students, program, instructional support, counseling, and program emphasis. Appendixes contain: (1) a questionnaire titled "Choosing a Postsecondary School," which helps students examine their own goals and needs and the characteristics of prospective schools; and (2) an annotated list of 18 resources for students, teachers, and counselors.
