For the College Bound Student
College planning can be overwhelming for all parents, students, and high school teachers and counselors. It is especially challenging for students with dyslexia as there are so many things to consider. IDA’s Fact Sheet, Transition to College, is a highly useful roadmap for navigating the whole process, from making sure students have current documentation of needs, to accommodations for taking college entrance tests, and later accommodations in college classes. To add to this Fact Sheet, SWIDA has asked several parents to each write about their child’s experiences at colleges here in the Southwest.
SPECIAL NOTE: IDA Southwest typically offers two scholarships to students who have completed at least one semester of college in good standing. The SWIDA Board was not able to meet this commitment for the 2018-2019 school year, but it will for 2019-2020.
APPLICATIONS WILL BE POSTED NEXT FALL. DEADLINE WILL BE APRIL 1, 2019.
