The Development of a Developmental, Annotated Time Line for Learning Disabled High School Students Planning To Attend College. Societal Factors Affecting Education.
An annotated time line to help learning disabled high school students and their families plan for and choose an appropriate college was developed. A review of the literature concerning the transition of learning disabled students from high school to college is presented as are results of interviews with college learning disability specialists, high school guidance counselors and special educators, and college admissions staff. The completed time line and associated worksheets were then distributed to area experts for feedback and revisions. Among 10 recommendations derived from the study are development of a symposium of local colleges and organization of a regional workshop for students, parents, and support staff. An 18-item bibliography is included. An appendix presents a workshop outline for high school juniors and their parents which includes the full time line. Fourteen appendixes to the workshop provide such information as: sources of information on programs for learning disabled students; support service availability; a self-evaluation profile; quesions to ask colleges; a data sheet for college selection; information on recordings for the blind and talking books; summer skill improvement programs; college admissions exams; the college admissions letter; financial aid; and a self-advocacy packet.
