Wilson, Heidi; Bialk, Philip; Freeze, Trevi B.; Freeze, Rick; Lutfiyya, Zana M.
British Journal of Learning Disabilities, v40 n2 p87-93 Jun 2012
Building a meaningful and valued life for individuals with learning disabilities requires the sustained, diligent and coordinated efforts of family members, supporters, educators and the individuals themselves. In this article, the formative childhood and adolescent experiences of two young adults with learning disabilities, leading to their transitions from high school to university, are chronicled. As co-authors with three of their university supporters, they describe their formative experiences in elementary and secondary school and the transition years that preceded university entry. Their university studies, as auditing students, and the Campus Life program, through which their studies were supported, also are described. Finally, their recommendations to other young people with learning disabilities who aspire to higher education are detailed. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
