Students With Learning Differences
For students with learning differences, applying to college can be especially stressful. Students who feel they must work harder to achieve less may fear that attending a selective college that is out of their reach. Parents may be concerned that colleges will not provide the level of support their student needs in order to excel academically.
The good news is that colleges are required to provide an extensive list of “disability services” for students with a diagnosed learning disability. In addition, many colleges offer extensive academic support services to a broad range of students, including students with learning differences as well as traditional learners who would benefit from individualized support. Academic support programs are available at colleges all around the country, both public and private, including highly selective colleges.
We will guide students with learning differences, and their concerned parents, through the entire college application process, ensuring that they are organized in meeting the numerous deadlines over a period of many months. We will develop an appropriate list of colleges for your consideration, and help you demonstrate through applications and essays how the student will contribute to the college community.
