Format: Paperback
This will be an essential purchase for any person with disabilities who is considering college. Like earlier titles I've recomended, Kendra D. Johnson and Trudie N. Hines's book recognizes and acknowlleges how the law actually works. They're not trying to exploit audiences.

Although people can enter college at any time after they have a high school/GED degree, their book is written more for the 'traditional' aged student who needs to know how the college environment substantively differs from high school special education programs. It is jam-packed with substantive information which these students should know if considering college. But it's written so they themselves easily understand and access the information for their own benefit.

It intersperses 'voices' of college student personal experiences with lists of college legal differences in a convienient format. These authors want their book to ultimately be a quick and practical reference a student will easily return to many times as they inevitably transition from high school to college.

Parents themselves might want to help with this transition process, but not necessarily know who or where to turn for advice at this point in their child's life. Accommodation have changed from what everybody previously knew and was comfortable with. This is a point itself highlighted throughout the book. The student inevitably will have to undergo this transition on their own.

This book is a great gift for individual students either considering or even heading off to college. It's also a good purchase idea for high school and/or community libraries. Students should have access to resources providing them with realistic information about what is expected and legally required in the college environment.

First, let me caution you about the different versions available:

I initially bought the Kindle version. However, it didn't display correctly using "Kindle for the PC". I was forced to get a credit through customer service, and replaced with the printed version.

I do not know if the problems have been corrected or not, but be forewarned.

The information contained within: This text is an overview of things everyone with one or more disabilities needs to know. It list websites of government - Dept. of Education, and others with references to ADA and "No Child Left Behind", and much more.

There are private organizations listed such as CHADD, LDA, and many states have sites for support and services: example - LDA-CA (Learning Disability Association - California) and LDAA (Learning Disability Association of America).

This was a required text for a course on Learning Disabilities I was enrolled after I was determined to have multiple issues. It is superficial in the quantity and quality of information, and is essentially a handbook, and NOT an indepth text on the subject.

However, the resources sited are good starting points for more research into the subject either as a parent of a child with learning disabilities, or as in my case, an independent adult returning to college to complete an undergraduate degree.

Besides resources, the handbook covers some of the laws pertaining to the disabled and specifically the learning disabled. It briefly covers aspects of the testing process and what are appropriate "reasonable accommodations".

As a starting point for the learning disabled, it is not bad. It is definitely written for the layperson and not the professional.

I have not finished the book but the Kindle version is all garbled. It is hard to find where the chapters actually begin and end.
