PREPARE FOR COLLEGE
College Selection and Application
Finding the best fit college is a daunting process for any family. But above the normal priorities, for students with disabilities there are a myriad of variables that require particular scrutiny including: college disability services (accommodations differ greatly among colleges!); professors' training in teaching students with disabilities; flexibility in scheduling; housing/room options; tutoring; advisory system; transportation; extra-curricular options; classroom technology; assistive technology; class size; and general commitment of the college to insuring that their students with disabilities are successful.
