There is a lack of literature on the transition to career for college graduates with learning disabilities (LD). The present study presents the results of 170 college graduates' written, open-ended responses related to how the transition to career may be improved. Responses focused upon two main categories, Suggestions for Programs and Suggestions for Students. Within Suggestions for Programs, the subcategories of Internships, Mentoring Programs, Specific Courses or Seminars, ADA Knowledge and Follow-Up with Graduates were identified. The Suggestions for Students responses were subdivided into two categories, Self-Understanding and Workplace Accommodations. Specific insights from graduates are offered within each of the categories, and recommendations for postsecondary LD programs and career service programs are offered.

Descriptors: Mentors, Learning Disabilities, College Graduates, Transitional Programs, Education Work Relationship, Internship Programs, Seminars, Federal Legislation, Self Concept, Accessibility (for Disabled), Equal Opportunities (Jobs)
