The high cost of having (a child with) a disability

Landmark College sounds like a great place for students with learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, and Autism Spectrum Disorder.

But children with disabilities and/or their parents often pay a high price for an education that suits their needs and helps them learn to overcome, or at least work around, their challenges.

$58,840/year for tuition, room, and board?!!! It's a good thing that there's financial aid available.

As I've said many times, having a disability isn't cheap.
