A College Selection Guidebook for Students with Disabilities, Their Parents, and High School Staff.
Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond. Student Services.
This directory, which updates and expands a 1989 version, provides information to guide students with disabilities, their parents, and school personnel in planning for postsecondary higher education opportunities. The guide is divided into seven sections to assist in planning and choosing the right college. A year-by-year plan stresses the need to begin college planning prior to the freshman year of high school. Other sections discuss choices that have to be made, students' responsibilities at postsecondary institutions, and the differences between high school and college. There is also a section that provides suggestions to high school teachers and counselors. A reference section lists 14 general references, mostly organizations, that can offer assistance. The bulk of the directory then lists support services provided by 23 community colleges and 31 colleges and universities in Virginia. For each institution of higher education, a two-page summary provides a program description, admission information, total enrollment, types of disabilities served, and checklists of general services and services for specific types of disabilities. The directory information is based on results of a 1992 survey. (JDD)
