Learn about Joyanne Cobb's book Learning How to Learn

You Can!Are you concerned that your learning disabilities will hinder you from attending the college of your choice? Do you need advice on how to take standardized tests in a form best suited to your needs? Are you looking for a postsecondary program that will support your future goals and learning styles? If so, then Learning How to Learn may be the book for you.

Written for high school and college students with learning disabilities (LD), this thorough, down-to-earth manual gently steers students through the process of preparing for college, choosing the right school, and succeeding academically.

Drawing from her own experiences, Joyanne offers concrete, step-by-step advice on how LD students can do the following:

  • take standardized tests in a form best suited to their needs,
  • best select a postsecondary program that will support their future goals and learning styles
  • take advantage of a wide range of supports and services
  • advocate for their rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act, to highlight their learning strengths, and to survive and succeed in college and beyond.

This edition includes a newly revised guide to colleges and universities with substantial services for LD students.

Most significantly, in Learning How to Learn, Joyanne Cobb offers a simple yet powerful message to high school and college students with learning disabilities.

YOU CAN!
