Financial Aid for Students with Learning Disabilities

Students who have learning disabilities are perfectly capable of learning, they just learn in different ways, and this often takes them longer. In the years from Kindergarten to Grade 12, there is more time allowed to them and often more support given. Once students reach the post-secondary level, things change. They are expected to keep up and are not validated for the extra work they have to do just to stay level. The work of college begins before college begins. Even before you have graduated from high-school, you begin planning your college career. Once you choose a school and get accepted, you still have to figure out how to pay the expenses. College is rewarding, but not cheap. Now you are no longer applying to schools; now you are applying for financial aid. […]
