Helping students with health conditions and physical disabilities:

Planning for College Tours-Tips for Students with Physical Disabilities and Health Conditions

Campus Housing for Students with Physical Disabilities and Health Conditions

My colleagues at TheBestSchools.org set out to simplify the vast amount of information on this topic and created a series that equips upcoming college students with the tools they need to join the ranks of higher education. Utilizing these guides will aid students in understanding the requirements which will, in turn, help their applications stand out.
