Subject: Colleges in the West?

I'm hoping that someone may be familar with colleges located in the western states that have good LD support systems. I have reviewed many of the directories but I'm finding that it is difficult to narrow the group down to a managable list for visiting. Does anyone out there have direct knowledge of any schools/programs? I'm disappointed that the programs that I see most mentioned (in a variety of sources) seem to be in the eastern states.

I think the situation that will work best for our daughter will be a small, nurturing school. Sara is quite motivated but I expect that she will have difficulty with organizarion, writing, lengthy reading assignments, and math. She would like the continuity of attending a single school for 4 years (probably more) but we would certainly consider a 2 year program that would prepare her to transfer. Sara would prefer a residential college rather than a community college. We believe that the experience of living away from home will be good for her as well.

Thanks for any ideas you can pass along.
