Guide to Paying for College for People With Disabilities – Getting a college degree is hard enough, but it presents a different set of challenges for people who have disabilities. If you are a parent with a child that has a disability, this guide can help you determine how to get financial aid, and access scholarships meant for people with disabilities.

College Resources for Students with Disabilities – Prospective college students with disabilities will find that many campuses are equipped with offices and services that address accessibility, accommodation, and assistive technology for a diverse range of needs. Student services offices and disability coordinators at many colleges work to make campuses inclusive environments through specialized advocacy, support, and academic services.

Academic Accommodation Resources – In most situations, a learning disability is not readily observable. Because there are no outward signs of a disability such as a white cane or wheelchair, students with learning disabilities are often overlooked or misunderstood. Some instructors and administrators suspect that students who claim to have learning disabilities are faking it, are playing the system, or lack the intelligence needed to succeed in college. Understanding the implications of learning disabilities, preparing to teach students with diverse characteristics, and learning to accommodate students with learning disabilities are essential for faculty and staff to provide academic and career opportunities for these students that are equivalent to those provided to their non-disabled peers.
