It is October, and most seniors have already decided on their college list, or are getting close to finalizing the schools they will apply to. While in the flurry of completing applications, taking a few minutes to explore what makes a college a good fit for you can be helpful. It does not mean you should change your list, but it might give you something to think about when you visit the colleges or when you are deciding which college to attend after acceptances are sent out. This article does a great job in delineating important points for students with learning differences to consider when thinking about where they will attend college. I particularly like how the article highlights the importance of exploring the graduation requirements to make sure that what the college will expect from the student is a good fit for the student. In the article there is also a link to colleges that provide supports for students. It is not an exhaustive list, but it certainly gives the reader an idea of what supports are available to students. Check it out and see what you think.
