The transition from high school to college is challenging for most students. College classes are more difficult, there’s a heavier workload, and the independence of college is exciting but daunting. This new stage of life can be especially difficult for students with disabilities, who have to navigate a completely different system for obtaining accommodations, new instructors who don’t know their needs, and other challenges to learning and daily life that may come with their disability.
Educators, counselors, and other practitioners have a professional responsibility to help students with disabilities prepare for their college transition. In this webcast, the presenters will discuss key differences between high school and college, available supports for student success, dispel common misunderstandings, and offer thoughts on what professionals can be doing right now to set their students up for success in college.
