Choosing which college to attend can be a daunting task, this is especially true when the student has an intellectual disability. In the past, these students were often not given the opportunity to attend college, but that's not the case today. The folks at the Institute for Community Inclusion at the University of Massachusetts in Boston have put together a great website called ThinkCollege.net to help students and families find the right program for them! This site includes a searchable database of post-secondary programs that support students with intellectual disabilities, a resource guide with links to information to help students and their parents make informed decisions and much more. ThinkCollege.net is organized into different sections for students, families and professionals to help users quickly find the information they need most.
