LD Resources Foundation Awards Assistive Devices to College Students in Need

Getting the right assistive technology at the post-secondary level can be difficult for students with learning disabilities.

It’s especially tough for adults applying to college with disability documentation (e.g. test scores) that no longer satisfy the school’s requirements for granting aid. Obtaining the  necessary tests can be time-consuming and costly.

The LD Resources Foundation can help students get the assistive technology they need, regardless of where they are in the evaluation process.

The nonprofit assists young adults with learning disabilities, including dyslexia and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), to access and succeed in higher education so they can reach their full potential. The Foundation currently offers five awards. Persons may apply for one or more awards using a single application.
