A couple thoughts:
1) Would listening to the text read aloud or reading it aloud to yourself help? Many, many books and textbooks are on bookshare.org now and it’s free if you have a diagnosed disability that impacts your reading and reading comprehension.
2) What about tutoring or disability services on campus, or both? These services are offered at most universities in the US and are most often free (well, included in the cost of tuition and fees).
