The number of students diagnosed with a learning difference has increased significantly over the past 10-15 years and consequently, the number of students with learning differences is increasing on college campuses. Students with learning differences have a great deal of potential for success at the post-secondary level. However, there are unique considerations when assisting a student with a Learning Difference (LD), ADHD or High Functioning Autism to plan for college. Considerations such as the type and scope of diagnostic testing, college selection, campus support services, use of referral sources and transition planning become vitally important in laying a solid foundation for the student’s collegiate success.
 
This course will provide the student with an understanding of: the etiology and definition of different types of LD; the important laws governing high school and college LD students; the differences among college support programs throughout the United States and how to evaluate them; the importance of referral sources and how to match an LD student with colleges which are a good fit. Application of the information learned in the course will culminate with a capstone project of developing a comprehensive college and transition plan for a case study student.
