Shockingly, only one in four informed their post-secondary institution of their disability. This equivocates to 75% of high school students with learning disabilities are not receiving the reasonable accommodation as prescribed by their medical professional.
Self-advocacy is more challenging for the learning disabled than it is for others protected by federal law. The result is the hidden disability community ends up being discriminated and have difficulty achieving their educational goals. there was no national organization to step in when self-advocacy breaks down, until now.
