- Make sure that the college you are going to attend has sufficient support services. Some schools do the minimum to comply with ADA requirements; others make support for students who need extra help a fundamental part of their mission.
- Make sure that your testing or medical reports are up to date. Colleges want current documentation of a disabilty.
- Check out the campus Office of Disability Services; speak with a counselor there and learn all you can about what supports that college offers to students.
The college application and decision process is fraught with enough stress for students and their parents. Understanding a student's rights to services and knowing what a particular college can provide can help smooth the way to a successful college career.
