Abstract

Numerous traumatic events have occurred in recent years and have greatly impacted people of all ages, including college-aged students. One of the causes of learning disabilities may be the increasing number of traumatic events. It is hypothesized that there has been an increased enrollment of students with learning disabilities in areas where traumatic events have occurred. Using data acquired from public and private colleges or universities in New York, we will determine if the number of students with learning disabilities is increasing on New York college campuses post-traumatic events and what services are being most frequently utilized.
