Special college fairs address the needs of students with disabilities

Tuesday, July 03, 2012
Many colleges across the country have accommodations in place for students with disabilities, including individuals with attention deficit disorders, dyslexia or various physical disabilities. According to a 2011 report from the National Center for Education Statistics, 88 percent of two-year and four-year colleges and universities enrolled students with disabilities during the 2008-2009 academic years.

For students with disabilities, finding information about a school’s ability to accommodate their special needs may be a challenge. While they can always turn to the prospective college’s Web site for information, a more informative and interactive way to get their questions answered could be to attend a college fair that specializes in helping students with disabilities find schools that best suit their needs.

At one of these specialized college fairs, students have an opportunity to take part in an experience very similar to that of traditional college fairs. The main difference is that participating colleges and universities send representatives who can answer any questions students with disabilities and their parents have regarding accommodations for the physically challenged including ramps, elevators, and oversized dorm rooms as well as procedures to implement the Individualized Education Program and 504 plan. The representatives will also have general information regarding admissions, academics, financial aid and student life.

Students who have a classified physical or learning disability should contact the special education counselor at their high school for more information about these special college fairs in your area.ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800811824-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
