ANSWER #6 of 11

Yes. Absolutely. I know several people who have dyslexia who have finished college. A lot of colleges will give out as much help as possible to make sure that people with disabilities are able to finish. When I was in my undergrad year I was asked to write notes in several of my classes to be handed out to students. They're very discrete about it, I would hand in my notes to the office and then they would give them to whomever needed them, but there is definitely additional help, and given that IQ doesnt necessarily correlate with a disability, there's no good reason someone with a disability shouldnt attend college.
