This book is a great step-by-step, easy-to-read guide for anyone who has a physical disability and is thinking about going to college or anyone with a child who has a physical disability and is thinking about going to college. Not only does the book literally take you step-by-step through the process of searching for and finding a college, but it also provides you with helpful resources, websites and forms to use along your way.
