Helping Students With Disabilities Prepare for College: What Educators and Advocates Need to Know

The transition from high school to post-secondary education can be difficult for all students, as they deal with new found freedom and increased academic demands. Students with disabilities have the added responsibility of self-disclosing their conditions in order to receive appropriate and effective accommodations. Without a well thought out and executed plan, the path to college and ultimately graduation can be filled with obstacles, stumbling blocks, and misinformation for these students. This on-demand webinar provides teachers/counselors, administrators, psychologists, parents, and educational consultants with the latest, most up-to-date information that students with disabilities need to know as they transition to college. Topics to be discussed include: applicable laws/legislation, the difference between K-12 and private school special education services, and accommodations available at the post-secondary level, documentation guidelines, and guidance on how to identify the best student/college match. In addition, information on emerging disabilities in higher education will be presented along with examples of commonly utilized accommodations. Throughout this on-demand webinar, the presenters utilize an approach that is student centered, collaborative, and focused on self-determination and student development. This program is invaluable for those seeking to prepare students with disabilities for the challenges, opportunities, and difficult questions inherent in the transition process.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to review the Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act.
  • You will be able to discuss the wide spectrum of supports on college campuses.
