Lists of Colleges and Universities Supportive of LD Students

  • Colleges for Students with Asperger's: The Friendly Ones: Marcia Rubinstien, an educational consultant, also identified these colleges as offering a supportive environment and personnel experienced working with students with Asperger's Syndrome and other spectrum disorders. A wide range of students might be attracted to the support and caring of these colleges.
  • Colleges for Students with Asperger's: The Very Friendly Ones: These are colleges with identified programs for students with Asperger's Syndrome. Asperger's Syndrome is a term used for students who may have difficulty adjusting to social situations, picking up social cues, and making transitions. Marcia Rubinstien, an educational consultant in Hartford, Connecticut, chose these colleges on the basis of factors such as acceptance of social and learning style differences, a good support system in residence life and academic affairs, easy access to disability support, and trained faculty and staff. Such characteristics might be appropriate for a wide range of students.
  • Colleges where Students with Learning Disabilities Can (and Do) Make It: As an expert on learning disabilities programs, Melinda Kopp knows more than we do--we can admit it! She's a Denver-based educational consultant, and she handpicked the following colleges for LD students.
  • Colleges with Accessible Teachers for Students with Learning Disabilities: The professors at these schools don't let anyone fall behind. For that, we think they should get an extra apple on their desk. Did we say apple? We meant a 25% raise.
  • The Experts' Choice: Colleges Where Students with a Learning Disability Succeed: Learning disabilities or not, we're all still going for a naked midnight run through the quad together.
