Student with disabilities face added layer of issues in transition to college

from Education Week

Brad McGaw knows that the move from high school to college will likely be a bit more challenging than for most seniors graduating this spring. In second grade, Brad was diagnosed with three disabilities related to how he learns: Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, auditory processing disorder, and language processing disorder.
