    Great Resource for Students and Families

    College Success for Students with Learning Disabilies is a great resource for parents and students who are not sure how to begin preparing for life after high school. The websites provided after each chapter were a great addition to the book. I recommend that high school counselors and career planning centers add this book to their library.

    ┬┐College Success for Students with Physical Disabilities┬┐ provid

    “College Success for Students with Physical Disabilities” provides parents and students with physical disabilities a much-needed guide to help students transition from high school to college.  This easy-to-read handbook provides information on important legal rights, responsibilities of the college and student, helpful points to consider, a wealth of resources, and the perspective of current students in the form of interviews.  Students are also given information on the general process of how to request accommodations in college and what those accommodations may or may not look like.  In addition to the resources at the end of each chapter, the appendix includes a listing of full-service colleges and colleges that provide past the minimum requirements put forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act.  This book follows a linear progression from planning to succeed in college while still in high school, to what to expect, how to conduct a search for a college, and then through to academic success.  Throughout the book, the importance of planning early and personal responsibility are reiterated.  Personal responsibility is examined both from an academic and personal care perspective.  Any student with physical disabilities, especially those still in the planning stages of college, and their parents could benefit from this clear guide as to how to transition smoothly from the high school setting to the college setting.
