College Success for Students with Physical Disabilities

Planning for college can be one of the biggest moments in a student’s life, but for those students with physical disabilities and chronic medical conditions, the college experience can be fraught with frustration, uncertainty, and lowered self-confidence. This book is designed to offer individuals the confidence, strategies, and guidance they need to effectively choose a college, get prepared for university life, and make the most of their college experience.

Students will learn about their rights under the laws governing education and disability, self-advocacy, choosing a college, how having a physical disability affects admissions testing, the increased responsibilities in college, and how to make sure they get everything they need. The book contains forms, checklists, interviews with other students, advice from college disability services personnel, and profiles of disability-friendly colleges across the United States.
