What is EDUFAX?
The EDUFAX Educational FAQ
I have a LEARNING DISABILITY.....
take me back to the list of questions
- I am interested in majoring in Communications, but my
GPA = 2.7. I have an IEP due to ADHD. I would like a program that is
much more hands-on and less classroom theory. Do you have any ideas
where I should apply? I am an American student interested in schools
in the US and in Canada. (courtesy Matthew Thomsen, Wilbraham, MA)
- Colby-Sawyer College in New London, New Hampshire, has a good
hands-on Communications major program and excellent support for
students with learning differences. You will find similar programs
at Quinnipiac University and Mitchell College, both in Connecticut,
and at Hofstra University in New York.
You can find the homepages of these and all (yes ALL!) the colleges in the USA through the EDUFAX web site.
Since the Canadian school system is very different from the American
system, I do not recommend that American students with learning
differences look at Canadian colleges. Most Canadian students attend
Grade 13, and are way ahead of American students in baseline courses
when they begin their university studies. The transition to college
is difficult enough for a student with learning differences. It
becomes much too complicated when it is necessary to factor in
another educational system and a different culture.
