I have worked with students with learning disabilities since 1975, concentrating on transition to college for high school students with LD/ADD since 1975. I served as a college Learning Specialist for 13 years during which I saw frequent and unnecessary failure among this cohort. As a result, I have become passionate about PROACTIVELY teaching special education students in high school (and their parents) how to do all they can to set themselves for college success prior to crossing the threshold. Started a subscription list for parents of high school students with learning differences at http://www.conquercollegewithld.com
Published many articles on unique teaching strategies, some of them award winners, in Teaching for Success, a journal for instructors in high education.
