Life after high school: have disability, considering college?

More and more high school students with disabilities are discovering that the opportunities to attend community colleges and universities are expanding. Whether you are looking for campus accessibility, assistive technology, scholarships, an active disabled students' program or guidance from students who have already done it, there are many resources to tap into. Some schools specialize in reaching out to students with a particular disability. One organization focuses on linking students with disabilities to international study programs. A new book by students with autism is full of tips for those trying to find welcoming schools. Disability Rights California staff have gathered a selection of references below and invite you to send us useful links that we missed.
