It’s that time of year when high school juniors (and many other future college students) begin looking into prospective colleges. But what about those students with special needs, particularly those with physical disabilities? How do they find the perfect college fit?
Prufrock’s recent release, College Success for Students With Physical Disabilities, contains a unique listing of America’s top disability-friendly colleges, focusing on those that go beyond the letter of the law in serving students with physical disabilities. Among the 77 schools on the list, five were named as the most supportive environments for students with physical disabilities including the University of California, Berkeley; Edinboro University of Pennsylvania; the University of Houston; the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; and Wright State University in Ohio.
