The EDUFAX Educational FAQ
I have a LEARNING DISABILITY.....
take me back to the list of questions
- My son is a senior enrolled in a private school for
students with LD. He is severely dyslexic and has ADD. Can you
recommend colleges suitable for him in the New England area or in
- There are a number of schools in New England and Florida which have
excellent support programs for students with learning disabilities
and ADHD. However, each student has different needs and it is not
appropriate to recommend one school over another without knowing
each student's specific academic and behavioral profile.
Like students, colleges, too, have personalities. I recently visited
some of the programs in Florida and you would not believe how
different one is from another with respect to general atmosphere,
campus culture, setting, and student body. The same is true from the
schools in the New England area.

can offer appropriate supports and resources for his learning needs,
make sure that he is aware of what accommodations he will require in
college. Discuss his situation with the learning specialists at
each school you consider to make sure that they can provide the
support he requires. If you are unable to investigate these schools
and programs by yourself, enlist the help of an educational
consultant who has experience in working with students who have
EDUFAX provides services for the Learning Disabled Student.
