The EDUFAX Educational FAQ

I have a LEARNING DISABILITY.....

Question #9:
  • I have a learning disability and have major problems getting into a mainstream college. I have been told by Landmark College that I am "too together". What do you suggest?
Answer #9:
  • There are many schools which prepare LD students for higher education, but Landmark College is the only college level program specifically designed for that purpose. Search the following resource:
    The Princeton Review/The K&W Guide to Colleges for the Learning Disabled
    A resource book for students, parents, and professionals
    by Marybeth Kravets & Imy F. Wax
    Random House, Inc., New York

    Thank you EDUFAQ
    When you identify a school which interests you, contact the Director of Learning Services to make sure that the school can offer you appropriate accommodation. If Landmark College thinks you are "too together", that's a good sign. They believe in empowering a student to self-advocate. By suggesting that you are "too together", I believe they are telling you that you are ready for a less specialized learning environment.
    You might also consider Curry College, the University of Hartford, American University or New England College. It is difficult to recommend schools without seeing your complete records, since different disabilities require different accommodations. I hope that some of my suggestions will help you start thinking about what sort of school is right for you.
    You can find direct links to the web sites and e-mail addresses of these and other colleges and universities on the EDUFAX Resources page.
    EDUFAX provides services for the Collegebound Learning Disabled Student.
    EDUFAX provides Verbal Test Prep Tutorials (PSAT/SAT I/SAT II/ACT).
