what Cal states have services for disabled students?
I am looking at Cal State colleges and have narrowed it down to mostly Sonoma, Monterey Bay, Humboldt, and East Bay, but I have High Functioning Autism. It does not usually interfere too much, however I do think it is enough of one for me to focus on finding a college with a Disabled Student Service. Thank you.

I am a Sonoma State alumnus. The campus has a Disability Services for Students Office which has its own webpage on the Sonoma website. When I attended, a student with high functioning autism (Asperger's) graduated with honors and distinction with my class and went on to a top graduate school. Psychology is one of the largest departments and the campus is aware of related issues.

We all will be finding out soon enough. Pelosi, Obama & Biden have PROMISED to enact legislation to provide amnesty to the illegals. Overnight millions will be added to welfare and food stamps and free schooling. Add that to the MILLIONS of imported workers (do you know that last year 4 million Americans went from full to part time work, 1.8 million lost their jobs completely, yet we imported 1.4 million foreign new graduates to take our jobs?). Add to that the "Employee Free Choice Act" which will allow unions to come to your home and intimidate you into signing up for the union. You should start to figure out how bad it will be here by this time next year. And we voted for this.

All of them. It is required by law.
