There are colleges out there that cater specifically to special needs students, but they're pricey. There's one up in Vermont called Landmark College that looks quite good. Here's a pointer to their website http://www.landmark.edu/index.htmlThere's another site that has a lot of information on preparing for college for a child with learning disabilities, and here's a pointer to that one http://www.ldonline.org/questions/collegeSomething that I have as a back-up plan for DS, who has his heart set on Johnson & Wales, is for him to attend a local community college for the first 2 years. My thinking is that if he does that, I can be the one to continue to manage his schoolwork so that he can be better prepared for college later. I also know that kids like my DS mature later, so this may be a good plan for him.We did the tour at Johnson & Wales, and one of the things they have is a SPED department. It was quite good, and after talking to those folks, I'd be willing to take the chance that DS could be successful there with their help, assuming he gets in. Something I learned from their SPED representative was that his IEP will travel to college with him, and they will work with you to make appropriate adjustments in it for his accommodations, so that is something else for you to consider.Of course, right now, I'm focusing on getting him out of high school. The math MCAS was Tuesday and Wednesday this week, and I do not have the warm and fuzzies that DS passed it. I did tell him that it's possible he won't pass, and if that happens, he'll just take it again next year.One step at a time.
