Worried about finding learning disability support? Edward Fiske has put together a list of major universities and small colleges that are known to have good support for students with learning disabilities.
Accommodation can be a prime deciding factor for students with learning disabilities. It’s important to note, though, that some schools are skeptical of requests for learning disability services, especially when the initial diagnosis comes during the college search. In any case, you should expect to be asked to provide thorough documentation of the diagnosis.
However, you should NEVER hesitate to ask for the help or accommodations that you need.
