The transition to college can be challenging for students with disabilities, but with the proper preparation, they can enjoy success. Author and college learning disabilities specialist Elizabeth Hamblet explains how the system for accommodations works at college, describes students' rights and responsibilities within that system, and shares what the research says are the skills students should develop while they're in high school to ensure success when they reach college. She also reviews the documentation students need to apply for accommodations and discusses what accommodations may be available.
