The purpose of this study was to examine the perspectives of college students with learning disabilities through their lived experiences.

The researcher gathered qualitative data to gain insight into the world of students with learning disabilities. The study consisted of a survey, focus group, and in-depth interviews. The data were reviewed in order to achieve a holistic picture of what the students' perceptions illustrate and to understand thematic commonalities from their lived experiences.
