Prepare your Learning Disabled Student for College

With fortitude, accommodations and professional testing in your child’s academic career, now you find your child is almost ready to graduate from high school and the whole family feels the relief. Now is not the time to put your feet up; because it is now time to get serious about selecting the right college for your child. By now, your student should have a good sense of how he or she learns best and how to prioritize time to maximize results in the way of grades. College is a different routine than high school. Whether public, private or home school, high school brings the services and accommodations to the student. College does not, each student needs to be an advocate and ask for each service, accommodation, tutor, or for testing extra time.

The programs vary greatly from minimal peer tutoring to math and writing centers, unlimited professional tutoring, preferential registration and quiet test rooms. Websites may mention the information but the following steps and questions should be asked before applying to a college. Call the admissions office and speak with the director of the learning program for the campus. Schedule an appointment if that is the only way to reach the right person and then the student should find out:

You get what you ask for and colleges encourage you to ask so do not let yourself down by waiting for help, go get it!
