A few words from Joan


Special Education and Transition To College
10 Things You Need to Know

  1. All colleges offer accommodations, but services are not mandatory.
  2. For students with LD, there is no correlation between doing well in high school and college success.
  3. If you have shopped for colleges for a teen without disabilities, forget everything you learned.
  4. Whatever support your teen received in high school, double that for college.
  5. In college, expect 2 to 3 hours of outside work for every hour spent in class.
  6. The belief that unstructured time is free leads to the downfall of many a college student, disability or no.
  7. College students with LD must actively seek help to succeed.
  8. If your teen is not motivated for college, your tuition will go down the drain.
  9. Postsecondary failure is common because along with the IEP, all familiar supports disappear upon transition.
  10. The sooner students learn and practice strategies that bode for college success, the more likely you are to attend graduation!
