Format: Paperback
Because so many 'college student with disability' books do a HORRIBLE job with their thesis, this book is in an important class by itself.

Addressing the prospective college student themselves, it merely requires them (if not already doing so) to assume proactive self responsibility) for accademic and personal success from the time of research to after-college graduation. Our parents legally cannot advocate in the college environment irrespective of how much they love us. So, people with disabilities need to do it themselves in the college environment!

Plus, it leaves that college environment itself wide open for application. It is correctly acknowledged that people with disabilities are NOT limited to considering only a handful of campuses. Like other prospective college students, we should consider a wide variety of factors when examining and then applying to post-secondary institutions. Certainly, we should consider if they offer an academic degree program which we are interested in/might be interested in--and if it is properly accredited so we successfully get a job with that hard-earned college degree. And finding out if you like the personality of the campus accommodations office--which we have to contact ourselves for the accomodations to commence--probably can't hurt either.

On the chapter explaining the rights of college students with disabilities. I only wish it had started out explaining the VERY large difference between a k-12 special education program and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The differences which were brought up (reasonable accommodation and the college institution not having to 'lower' program speed/standards) honestly might not be clear for some readers.

I bought this book for my daughter who has exceeded her elementary teachers expectations. She is now ready to go to college. So I looked for a book that could Guide her thru college thus aiding her to self advocate on her behalf. Knowing she would not read it, I read it. My goal is to point her to this book as she needs it. I also liked the carry over to job hunting, writing resumes', to the first day on the job. All the while providing advise for people with learning disabilities. I recommend this book to parents and their children. We will keep it.

This is for those that are dealing with learning disabilites or have trouble with thinking, inability to read, communicate, who're able to make better grades, attend colleges, take tests and/or quizzes, shoot!!!...this book tells it all. I recommend LIFE IS NOT A FAIRY TALE by American Idol winner and singer Fantasia.

I was reading live 5 or so chapters to this book and wasn't deeply depressed about it. So IMO it seems it helps me. I can't go mad. This is right s**t here.

Also in the book, it talks about the kinds of careers or jobs u wanna pursue or have an interest to, talks the type'a skills, type'a research u need in order to get in. I recommend this to all job-seekers, school/college graduates and dropouts, who are in school or just finished school, so forth.

This is the book u need if u wanna learn and acheive. I say AMEN to that.
