Disability education information and resources

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, higher levels of education translate to higher employment rates and higher lifetime earnings. There are many obstacles that students face that interfere with their higher education pursuits, so we attempted to address two of them with our recent guides.

The first is an in-depth tutoring guide designed by specifically to help students who find a large classroom setting challenging. Whether it be learning difficulties or simply the inability to stay engaged with the required classwork, the guide covers the benefits of different types of tutoring, resources that are freely available, as well as tools specifically designed for students with learning disabilities.

For the second, is guessing that like us, you too have noticed there is no shortage of information about the numerous scholarships available to students with disabilities. In the course of our research, we found a common pain point among students was having the tools to help sort through all the available scholarships to find those that would be most applicable to their situation.

So we spent over 200 hours researching 17 of the most popular disabled scholarship search platforms that are currently available. We analyzed and audited them using five core metrics to identify key functionality, research tools, scholarship results, and useful student resources.

We are trying to raise awareness around the barriers that hinder students from pursuing their potential and wanted to see if you could help us. So that students and their families can have access to these resources.
