The Schoolsearch Guide to Colleges with Programs or Services for Students with Learning Disabilities.
This directory was designed to help students with learning disabilities understand the types of college programs and services available to them so they can match their needs with what each school offers. Over 600 colleges and universities are profiled, divided into two sections: colleges and universities that have programs, and colleges and universities that offer services. In both sections, schools are arranged alphabetically by state. Information provided for each program includes: learning disability program name, address, and telephone number; application information; rating of importance of factors from applicants' secondary schools; test requirements; general information on campus setting, academic program, and student life; sports/activities; enrollment; learning disability program staff information; specific services; academic adjustments; diagnostic testing available; tutoring offered; unique characteristics of the program; and majors. Appendices contain tables listing individual colleges and the most important college admission factors from applicant's secondary school background; test requirements; deficits served; special services, special aids, and academic adjustments; and tutorials offered.
