If you are considering buying this book then you are likely a parent with a child with a learning disability. I am a parent of a child with a learning disability. I have found that I MUST advocate for my child. Entering College as a Freshman is another life transition. These life transitions can be so very difficult for these students. What makes this book valuable is that the book organizes those schools that have "Structured/Proactive Programs". It lists detailed information such as number of staff supporting the program, number of students enrolled, orientation, diagnostic testing, tutoring, written policies. I did not find this kind of organization or these details on the college internet sites. These "Structured/Proactive Programs" are programs that students with IEPs will need. "Services" will simply not be enough because "Services" require the student to seek them out. Many students with learning disabilities entering college have not yet developed the maturity to be an advocate for themselves. Hence, the need for a "Program". These programs have additional fees indicating that they provide additional services not provided for students without a disability.

I like the format of this book. It's organized by 2 and 4 year colleges that offer structured programs, which require your student to meet on a regular basis with support personnel, and decentralized programs which offer support, but your child must initiate meetings with the support personnel. It provides information on the # students receiving services and the qualifications of support personnel. When looking at colleges, I was initially confused because many colleges have disability/ADD support, but it required some investigating to understand the quality and depth of their programs. If your child needs more support than just editing papers, which most colleges now provide, this book offers insight into the schools that are able to offer more dedicated support.

As an educator who deals with students with learning disabilities, this guide is an essential tool for placement possibilities. This Peterson's resource has a precise yet thorough introduction for self advocacy and college expectations for students. In addition it has tips for who to see, what is required, and the types of services colleges are offering. There is a 300+ page listing of both 4-year and 2-year colleges that offer supportive programs. This is an excellent resource for parents, students, and school counselors.

Even though information moves at the speed of light, some things are good to have on hand. I was able to help out a friend find a college for their child. The basic information like phone numbers of administration, address of college, and the like were helpful in their case. The information that I was looking for was used and appreciated.
