Some learning-disabled (LD) students enroll at colleges, universities, or other institutions of higher education. However, many more LD students could succeed in higher education settings if several inhibiting factors were appropriately addressed by professional educators. We have identified three such factors in this paper - the lack of training that LD students receive in high school for college work, the negative attitudes of college faculty members toward LD students, and the lack of trained support personnel on campuses to assist LD students. These issues as well as suggestions to address these problems are discussed in this paper.
