Education agents know most countries have some level of special education needs provision at the primary and secondary levels for students deemed to have disabilities, differences or disadvantages, as well as anti-discrimination laws in place to ensure ongoing social inclusion. Most agents likely do not know that there is a large, untapped and underserved population of bright, gifted college-capable students with non-apparent or hidden conditions such as dyslexia, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders and other similar mental health conditions.
This is a presentation by Rob and Veronica Crawford, co-founders of the Life Development Institute (LDI), which provides sector/trend analysis, examples of successful models, and strategies for agents, educational institutions or service providers interested in sourcing, recruiting, and placing students with hidden disabilities in the US, or building similar linkages within their countries.
In addition, please see Mr Crawford's guest post on icefmonitor.com (http://bit.ly/1nOI6Zu) which discusses the challenges we face in helping students with disabilities to succeed, and provides background data, resources and strategies for working with this often overlooked market.
