Follow me on:

My son just started his second semester at community college, my daughter her next-to-last, and every day I marvel at how far both they and colleges in general have come since the days when my mention of a college experience would have earned derisive laughter and a "mom has no clue" headshake from the assembled IEP team. If you're wondering whether college might have a place for your student with special needs, read "Could Your Child Go to College?" -- and if you're wondering how you might pay for that, "Where to Find a Scholarship for Your Child With a Disability" might be helpful too.
