Notably, while the Times piece mentions students with emotional and executive function difficulties, it does not discuss students with previously diagnosed learning and related disabilities. For these students, there are additional complexities involved in arranging and using the accommodations and supports they need.
We've addressed many of these issues before in this blog, and you may want to take a look at some of these past posts once you have read the Times piece. They include:
Choosing the College that Fits
Things to Consider When Heading to College
How to Head Off Academic Trouble in College (in retrospect, perhaps doesn't say enough about fostering student independence)
Other suggestions are set out in your blogger's book, Life After High School -- especially the final chapters dealing with medication and managing the distractions of college life.
