Guest Post – Disability education information and resources

My name is Savannah, I’m with, a website dedicated to conducting data driven and unbiased research about topics that can help make an impact in people’s lives. We have just finished two studies that I wanted to share with you to see if they could be valuable for families in your community.

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 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, I’m 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 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.

You can see our free collections of guides and tools here:

We’re trying to raise awareness around the barriers that hinder students from pursuing their potential and wanted to see if you could help us. We would appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with you to share the guides on your website so that students and their families can have access to these resources. Of course, you are free to choose the best place for it on your site.

Let me know what you think or if you have any questions. If there’s someone else you prefer I send this to, please let me know as well, I’d be happy to connect with them.

Thank you for your time and consideration!

Hockey season 2017 has begun!

Rocco suited up and hit the ice this past weekend, the start of the New Jersey Dare Devils 2017-2018 hockey season. This is Rocco’s third year with the team. Best part—Rocco sleeps great after hockey practice! An hour of skating is hard work!
