Learning disabilities; transition; high school; college
The purpose of this study was to examine the perspectives of college students with learning disabilities through their lived experiences. Specifically, as they related to their high school learning experiences, their transition to higher education, and their continued academic and social support in higher education. The researcher gathered qualitative data to gain insight into the world of students with learning disabilities. The study consisted of a survey, focus group, and in-depth interviews. The data were reviewed in order to achieve a holistic picture of what the students* perceptions illustrate and to understand thematic commonalities from their lived experiences. The researcher hoped to shape possible effective instructional strategies and supports for students with learning disabilities in secondary and post-secondary educational experiences.
