Colleges with Support Services

29 Mar 2017

Learning differences do not need to stand in the way of a student’s pursuit of a college education. Increasingly, students with IEPs and 504 plans are participating in a range of programs that support students as they transition into and throughout college. Whether a student has ADHD, intellectual disabilities, autism, dyslexia, or other disability, post-secondary programs exist to prepare them for meaningful careers and independence.
