Access to Higher Education for Learning Disabled Students.
This paper presents guidelines for learning-disabled students who are in the process of selecting a college or university. Guidelines include being aware that specially designed programs for the learning disabled are still unusual, that institution size may not be an important factor, that a certification of disability may be required to receive special support services, that choice of classes and major field is important, and that support services are usually described in the college catalog. The value of visiting a prospective college is stressed, and general and specific questions to ask are suggested concerning university policies, instructional modifications, and socioemotional accommodations. These questions are used to structure a college selection checklist. (DB)
