Finding the right college for a student who learns differently can be a challenging and often overwhelming process. At Landmark College, we understand that each student has individual priorities and needs, so we’ve built a comparison tool that explores resources and features for different colleges with LD support. Explore the comparison tool below to find the best fit for your student.
Student Support Services
At traditional colleges, assistive technology is often neither readily available to students nor integrated into the classroom experience.
Students typically must contact their school’s disability office to inquire about the technology available. Extra costs and fees can come from requesting assistive technology, depending on the college or university. In many cases, the institution doesn’t have the resources to help students acquire the technology they need, and students are responsible for securing such technology themselves. Often, it is several weeks into a semester before the technology is available to the student.
Classroom experiences vary depending on the availability of technological resources and support at traditional schools, making them less customizable than an LD-focused college. These resources may or may not be available, but could include options such as text readers, graphic organizers, time management tools, and/or speech-to-text software.
