USA Overseas Education Counseling

Enrolling in a US bachelor’s degree program is usually a difficult process for students with special education needs (SEN) such as ADHD, Dyslexia/Learning Disabilities or Asperger’s Syndrome. Timed standardized tests such as TOEFL, SAT and ACT create unique difficulties that can seem impassible for SEN students and can be particularly difficult for international applicants for whom English is a non-native language.

Even so, overseas universities can provide remarkable educational opportunities for students with learning or mood control difficulties. We help students find colleges that provide unique attention and support for SEN students, from both individual teachers and school administration, in order to maximize their potential.

Our counselor will help parents and students understand all available opportunities to achieve their educational goals and find health, happiness and success in the USA.
