The EDUFAX Educational FAQ

I have a LEARNING DISABILITY.....

Question #20:
  • I am a student with Learning disabilities entering 10th grade. I cannot take college prep courses, but want to go to college. I need to pick high school courses that will be accepted by colleges. I need help!
Answer #20:
  • There are several colleges that cater to LD students. However, I am concerned that if you cannot take college prep classes, you might not be able to take regular college courses. Most schools will require the standard amounts of English, Math, Science, History, etc. Your guidance counselor should be able to help you contact the Learning Disabilities Association (LDA) chapter in your state. If not, visit the National LDA site, and see what information and assistance is available in your community.
    Two well known colleges that have specific programs for LD students are:
    • Lynn University, FL
    • Curry College, MA
    A community college is also a good place for LD students to start, since the classes are small and faculty access is easier. In order to provide you with more specific and customized information, I would need to evaluate your academic and educational reports, records and evaluations.
    If this process sounds too daunting for you, find an educational consultant with experience in placing LD students. You could also use the EDUFAX services for the LD Student.
