Abstract

Forty-nine adults with learning disabilities were interviewed about their college experiences. Most of the respondents adjusted well to the demands and complexities of college. Approximately 90% of the participants graduated from college in approximately 5.5 years. In addition, students typically attended more than one college or university and pursued a variety of majors. Keys and barriers to success were examined, and recommendations were also made for improving educational outcomes.
