College help abounds for students with disabilities
Thinking about signing up for courses at your local community college or pursuing a degree at a four-year university? If you have a learning disability, opportunities abound to get help before classes start and even once they’ve begun. Institutions of higher education are reaching out to students with disabilities like never before. And those students are benefiting from an array of colleges offering specialized support programs geared to their special needs. USA TODAY writes about Maryland’s Project Access Summer Institute, a program for high school students with learning disabilities at Howard Community College in Columbia, Md. But there are programs across the country.
