Editorial Reviews

Review

In order for IEPs to reflect the necessary goals, college planning for students with learning disabilities ought to begin in eighth grade. In a conversational tone, interspersed with lists of tips, tables, and worksheets, the authors guide students (and parents and counselors) through practical considerations while emphasizing that student self-advocacy is essential. Boxes labeled "Learning to Ask the Right Questions" with need-to-know items are especially useful.

Format: Paperback
As a college educator I am constantly looking for good resources to recommend to students who are considering attending college. This book is an excellent book written in an easy to read fashion. It covers all the relevant information that a student with a specific disability would need to consider when making the choice to attend college as well as after they begin college life. I highly recommend this book to parents, teachers and students. It is packed full of great information.
