I’ve been reading The Well-Trained Mind and I’m wondering if anyone has been able to use this method with a child with Down Syndrome or another developmental delay. I know the 4th Edition has a chapter on learning difficulties but that seemed to be more about having your child tested if you suspect they have some sort of learning difficulty. What if I already know she has a developmental delay? Is The Well-Trained Mind achievable for someone like my daughter?
Our library has a book that appears to be pretty new (copyright 2016, with no previous years listed), not just a revised edition of an older book, so I thought I'd share it. https://www.amazon.com/College-Success-Students-Disabilities-Real-World-ebook/dp/B01CGSEU4K#nav-subnav The author, Irene Ingersoll, has "recently retired" as a disability coordinator for a college in High Point, NC. After a section that applies to all disabilities, the book is organized by types of disabilities and includes real life experiences. She includes sections on self-advocacy, lists of colleges with robust disability services, and technology.
