I'm a professional educational advocate and I advise kids with learning disabilities regarding the college search and application process. This guide is my "go to," manual -- it's comprehensive and terrific. Highly recommend.

This book is a great starting point for parents and counselors overwhelmed by the college search. It's comprehensive and allows one to build a large list of schools that MAY be appropriate, then it's time to do the leg work and visit the campuses, interview the specialized support personnel OR hire a professional who has already done this. NO ONE should rely on a book to make a placement decision as large as this. 25% of students attending 4-year colleges are now doing so with the help of an educational consultant for good reason. Imy Wax and Marybeth Kravets are both extremely knowledgable ed. consultants who have a great deal of experience working with LD students on the college process.

This book has been a great resource in helping me find a college for my son.
The information on each school is exactly what I was looking for.

I bought this book hoping to get detailed insights into the services offered by different colleges and universities. The classification system listing services offered in the book is very generic and lacks depth.

I am a non-traditional and returning mature student that was recently assessed for Learning Disabilities. As an adult, I do not qualify for many of the services that the ADA and Disabilities Education Act that are mandated for grades K-12.

Being more specific, I do not qualify for support services and training in what my learning disabilities are, and how they have and continue to impact my life. I do not qualify for any training in creating an Independent Educational Program (IEP) to assist me in goal setting and being successful in my academic goals at university.

At best, this book offers a summary of mandated services found at many colleges and universities. However, all this information can be found at each university's website.

Keep in mind that there are no mandated services after high school except those under the ADA only.

What I desperately wanted and needed was detailed information on what services are available as a continuation of mandated K-12 services, and what services would be provided if the assessment for learning disabilities takes place AFTER graduation from high school as in my case.

So, my recommendation is to save your money, and interview any college or university that you might be interested in attending.

Respectfully,

MJR
