Archived for 2 weeks only****PRESENTED BY ELIZABETH HAMBLET, LDT-C, M.S. Ed., M.A.T.This presentation is the second in a four-part series on preparing students with disabilities for successful transition to college. In Part I, we discussed the changes in prevailing laws covering students with disabilities as they move from high school to college and what these mean with regard to the reduced demands placed on colleges vs. high school (and why they are reduced). In Part II of this series, we will look at what the laws say about the accommodations and services colleges have to provide (there will be a bit of a review for those who viewed Part I). We will then discuss the many accommodations students can typically expect to receive at college, and what ones might be difficult to get. We will also review the types of technology that colleges are using to help students be independent learners at college. This workshop is important for all high school professionals working with students with disabilities because it will give them a good sense of how they can work with families to make sure that students’ high school supports (including both accommodations and strategic instruction) move them toward the kind of independent academic functioning that will be expected of them at college.
