WHY USE READY SET GO COLLEGE


Why Ready Set Go College?

In order to be competitive in the current labor market it has become increasingly important for individuals with disabilities to receive a college degree, primarily because having a four year degree is positively correlated with employment rates.  (Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability).

Students with disabilities are more likely than their non-disabled peers to have difficulty in the following areas:  study/test taking skills; note taking; listening comprehension; organization; social skills; self-esteem and reading/writing (Junco, 2002).

The abilities that students bring to the college experience as well as the postsecondary academic setting significantly impact their ability to succeed.  (Astin, 1998).

Unfortunately, only 41% of students with disabilities complete college once they start, (Huffington Post 2014).
