MANAGING LEARNING DISABILITIES IN COLLEGE

 ALL of our athletes should know that having a learning disability doesn’t mean that you can’t go to university. 

… there is a school for every kid and a kid for every school!I did a little research that you might want to add to your ever-growing list of resources for future reference:·        CollegeBoard (www.collegeboard.com).  Check out their information on Services for Students with Disabilities, Disability Guidelines,   Accommodations, Learning Disabilities, and Eligibility

·        College Scholarships, Colleges, and Online Degrees has a section on the various universities that make accommodations for students with learning disabilities.  The page is Colleges with Programs for Learning Disabled Students.  Just looking at the list, I see that a couple of Erie, PA schools have programs for kids with learning disabilities … Mercyhurst College and Gannon University.  I’m sure that there are many more, but take a look through the list to see what you can find.
