What is EDUFAX?
The EDUFAX Educational FAQ
I have a LEARNING DISABILITY.....
take me back to the list of questions
- Which colleges in Florida offer Learning Disability
(LD) services, in contrast to comprehensive LD programs, as offered
at Lynn University? (courtesy Wendy Nunn, Sugarloaf Key, FL)
- All colleges in the United States are mandated by Federal law to
provide accommodations for students diagnosed with learning
disabilities. Colleges should provide you with the same
accommodations you received in high school, such as extended time
for tests, preferential seating, etc. So, of course, any college or
university in Florida technically offers LD services. Unfortunately,
what they say they offer can sometimes be very different from what
is actually available.
Lynn University, as you already know, is a university designed
specifically for students with LD, but there are other colleges in
Florida with centralized and dependable learning support programs.
Some of these are:
If you are a student with LD and are applying to college, make sure
you contact the LD coordinator at the same time you contact the
admissions office. Be certain that your particular learning needs
can be met. Ask specific questions to learn how they have dealt with
similar situations in the past. Find out what kinds of testing are
required in order for you to receive the LD services.
- Florida A&M
- Florida Atlantic University
- University of Florida at Gainesville
Ask how the rate of academic success for students with declared
learning disabilities compares to that of students in the general
pool. If the rate of success is similar, then you know that the
support services are will organized, accessible, and appropriate.
Do careful detective work before college so that you won't find
yourself overloaded and undersupported.
If you cannot access all the information you need yourself, seek the
help of a qualified educational consultant.
