Hello, and welcome back to Just Answer.

There are many higher education programs designed for special education students after completing High School. You can find some helpful information here:

Of course the program you choose would be dependent upon the ultimate goal or career path and the type of learning differences and/or physical disabilities.

It also might be a good idea to contact your local City/State Department of Education to find out what programs are available in your immediate area.

I wish you much good luck in your future endeavors!
