Transition from high school to college is a critical time in a student’s life and may be particularly challenging for students with learning disabilities.* Most students, and their parents, are not aware of the many resources available that may help students maximize their chances for a successful college experience. This informative and engaging conference, designed specifically for students with disabilities who plan to attend a two- or four-year college, will provide students, parents and professionals with valuable information and resources to help prepare students as they transition to college and to ensure that the years ahead are successful ones.
