Can struggling learners succeed in college?
Can they even get into college?
Sure, they can. Here’s how.
We know adults who struggled with learning disabilities in school who are successful authors, international entrepreneurs, college professors, and professionals, but that seemed a long way away when our own children were struggling. Imagine our surprise when we found ourselves prepping those same kids for college admissions exams and coursework. It took a ridiculous amount of research to find out how to get the accommodations our sons needed. Now we’re sharing all that information so you don’t have to hunt it down yourself. Learn how to get the documentation you need and how to present it so that your children will get all the help they need to use the gifts God has given them. 67 Pages.
