Challenges Students with Learning Disabilities Face without Transition Programs to Post-Secondary Institutions
By: Christine Warian Ed.D.
About the Book
Christine Warian Ed.D. has been in education for over two decades and, throughout her career, has developed a passion for literacy and dyslexia. She has also developed a desire to prepare the next generation of teachers as they embark on their career educating students who come into their lives. Challenges Students with Learning Disabilities Face without Transition Programs to Post-Secondary Institutions was developed as a dissertation topic since Dr. Warian wanted to know what programs are available to students with learning disabilities as they prepare to transition to post-secondary institutions. Dr. Warian is familiar with services that are available to students with learning disabilities in the K-12 school environment and felt a need to investigate what programs, if any, are available to this population of students at the post-secondary level. Administrators of post-secondary institutions would benefit from reading this text to provide them guidance in what to provide to students with learning disabilities that are enrolled in their institution. Investigating post-secondary institutions, private and public, in the state of New Jersey, few institutions provide programs for students with learning disabilities. Information provided in this work, from institutional websites as well as participants’ experiences, indicates a need at the post-secondary level to ensure students with a learning disability have the same opportunity as their non-learning-disabled peers at the post-secondary level.
