This page is very much a work in progress.
While I try to make the tips in my videos, podcast episodes, and articles as widely applicable as possible, I’ve learned that they may not always work for certain students. Many different learning disabilities and conditions can make college and other educational programs more difficult.
Fortunately, many smart and supportive people have stepped up to provide information and links to resources for student facing these challenges. On this page, I’ll link to the ones I know about in hopes that it might be of some use.
First, if you’re in college, it’s likely that there’s a student disability resource center somewhere on your campus, where you’ll find people who are trained to help with a huge variety of problems.
