Description

Students with physical and cognitive disabilities are accessing postsecondary education in record numbers. This is the result of better accommodation practices at the high school level and improved access to personal support. However, students with learning and physical disabilities still face a number of barriers that can impact their success in college. This includes a lack of awareness of their strengths, limited self-advocacy skills, and the elimination of the support structure that supported them in high school. This event will highlight several ways to orient new college students with disabilities to the array of resources available at the college level and help them make this shift successfully.

Join us to learn ideas for creating dedicated transition programming on your campus that can help connect students to resources and supports early and often.
