The EDUFAX Educational FAQ

I have a LEARNING DISABILITY.....

Question #21:
  • My daughter has ADD and is trying very hard to get into college. She is extremely bright but has great difficulties in the public school she attends. In the past 2 years she has succeeded in going from failing to high grades. However, her final GPA will be low and will not truly reflect her intellect. How can she apply to a good college? (courtesy Mary E. Reece, East Liverpool, OH)
Answer #21:
  • Contact the ADHD sites that are available on the Internet to learn how to advocate for your daughter. It sounds as though she has done a wonderful job of learning about her skills are and compensating for her difficulties. There are definitely colleges which will take a chance on a student who shows such potential. To find out more about schools in your area, you should contact an educational consultant. You can find a listing of certified educational consultants in your area by searching the IECA Internet site.
    If you are interested in the EDUFAX Assistance Program for the LD Student, you can get more information on the EDUFAX site.
    Some students with learning disabilities and/or attention deficits benefit from a 13th year in a prep-school setting (post-graduate year or PG-13). Others do extremely well if they can spend some time at Landmark College, which teaches students with learning differences to advocate for their needs and helps them move on to other schools.
    You should contact the learning resource people at every school you consider so that you can assess what types of educational support they provide. Make sure that you have current and comprehensive educational assessments for your daughter.
    Good Luck in your search for your daughter's school. Students with ADHD can be very successful with the right attitude and positive support.
    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.
