Pursuing college against the odds
I came across some interesting statistics on college success for students with learning disabilities. About 11% of students entering college have learning disabilities but fewer than 1 in 4 of those students are still enrolled a year later. What happens? Check out the PowerPoint “Secondary Perspective on Transition” at LD Online. It makes clear that self-advocacy, self-identification and appropriate accommodations adjusted each semester are critical for college success and eventual graduation. Some of the latest research related to instructing students of all ages will be unveiled at the 31st annual international Council for Learning Disabilities conference this weekend in Dallas.
