Book Title: College Success for Students With Disabilities: A Guide to Finding and Using Resources, With Real-world Stories
Author: Irene Ingersoll
The demanding workload and fast pace of college often overwhelm students. Without access to the right resources, many of the three million U.S. college students with disabilities fail or drop out--at a much higher rate than their peers.
This guide helps students, parents, counselors and psychologists find the appropriate resources and accommodations to help students with disabilities successfully transition to college.
The author explains Americans with Disabilities Act laws and outlines steps for requesting and implementing college staff, classroom and testing accommodations.
Student testimonies are included, advising on which assistive technologies and resources have worked to achieve academic success.
