    Self-Advocacy Skills for Students with Learning Disabilities: Making it Happen in College and Beyond

    As students decide which college they will attend this spring, consider the newly-published book Self-Advocacy for Students with Learning Disabilities: Making it Happen in College and Beyond, by Henry Reiff, dean of Student Academic Life at McDaniel College. Self-Advocacy for Students with Learning Disabilities gives concrete advice to students, parents and counselors about how to select and gain acceptance to college, and how to succeed once the student is enrolled. ¿Do not underestimate the potential of students with learning disabilities to make it in college,¿ says Reiff. ¿I¿ve spoken with many successful adults with learning disabilities who graduated from college. Many of them earned graduate degrees as well. You would be amazed at how many of them were told that they would never make it in college ¿ that they were not college material.¿ Reiff¿s tips include: -When to get serious about college, and the preparation that benefits families the most. -Where to look for the best information about colleges that nurture students¿ special needs -What laws affect learning disabled students¿ college application process -Why advocacy is critical to getting and keeping your student in college Reiff is a 30 year educator and the author of the American Library Association award-winning book Exceeding Expectations: Successful Adults with Learning Disabilities.

    It is filled with suggestions, tips and concrete ways that the students we work with can become even more empowered to pursue their goals. I especially like the focus on multiple audiences including the advice for helicopter parents!!

    What a page-turner--I could hardly put it down. It is awesome. I even had a dream about it, although in the dream it was filled with amazing watercolor illustrations! ...the second edition no doubt.
