This guide profiles 1,053 colleges and universities that provide services to meet the needs of students with learning disabilities (LD) or attention deficit disorders (ADD). The first section of the book provides basic information about how colleges and universities throughout the country are responding to the specific needs of students with LD or ADD. It also contains definitions of the criteria used to qualify the programs profiled and explains the major components of a learning disabilities program. The following section provides step-by-step guidelines for narrowing college selections, finding out more about these schools, applying to top choices, and preparing for a visit. A personal summary chart is designed to assist in organizing and comparing features of different colleges. A resource section lists organizations that can be contacted to provide more information related to higher education for individuals with LD or ADD. A quick-reference chart is included that provides essential information elements about every college profiled in the guide. The last part of the book provides detailed information about learning disabilities and ADD programs at specific colleges. Information is provided on four-year colleges, two-year colleges, colleges with comprehensive programs, and colleges that provide special services. A CD-ROM accompanies the guide.
