High school students who have learning disabilities may feel as though their higher education options are limited. However, many institutions cater to the intellectual needs of those with Attention-Deficit Disorder (ADD), dyslexia and other related conditions.
For example, Landmark Community College in Vermont seeks to teach the skills that are necessary for success in college and the workforce to students with learning disabilities, according to the school. Learners at Landmark get personal, directed assistance that is typically not offered at other colleges.
Each student receives individualized attention from classroom instructors in courses that are tailored to meet their educational needs. The school has courses for skills development and college credit, as well as an associate's degree program for individuals who have average to excellent intellectual potential. The advisors meet with students frequently to review and guide their progress.
The college also offers a wide variety of sports and social activities on campus and in the surrounding community.
Recent estimates from the Pew Research Center suggest that community colleges enroll close to half of all U.S. undergraduates.
