Subject: re: independent schools & higher education

Hello,
I'm an educational specialist in San Francisco who is interested in assembling a list of 20 or so independent schools and colleges / universities (some in the west -especially- as well as the Midwest & east coast), which have particularly effective programs for students with mild/moderate LDs. I receive many inquiries from parents related to this issue and am attempting to unravel this mystery for them.
Does anyone know of a resource which might have this information? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

There is a post on this on the IDA board. Try the new different "audiences" until you find it.

http://www.west.net/~ger/index.html -- check out the Santa Barbara City College program.

http://www.marshall.edu/help/ - Marshall University in W. Va.'s HELP program.

Many community colleges are developing reasonable to good support systems.


Also try Beacon College in Florida (an exclusively LD school).

If you look at the publications of LD groups like the IDA there are ads for schools and programs including ones that include a higher level of intervention for developing job and social and living skills.

Years ago the Univ of Bridgeport in Conn had a program called basic studies. It was a great program with tons of support.

Peterson's Guide to Colleges and Universities for LD Individuals describes the support programs and services through Offices for Specail Students at the collegs and univesites trhoughout the USA state by state and city by city. It will also tell you how may Ld Students they currently have enrolled. Ther are other resorces such as KP or KG's guide to Colllesge for Individuals with LD. The best way to locate all the source is to go to either Amazon. Com or Barnes and Nobles. Com and type in College Programs for Students With Ld and you can find out all the guides that exist for that category.
