Oct 27, 2018 10:45am ‐ Oct 27, 2018 12:15pm


When students transition to college, prevailing laws change, which affects the availability of services and of certain accommodations. Parents and professionals must know what supports students can and cannot expect so they can prepare the students for the shift. Learn what accommodations students are likely to receive, or not, and why.

Learning Objectives:

  • ACCOMMODATIONS: Identify the critical elements in a disability document that will support the accommodation requests for students with learning disabilities.
  • ADVOCACY AND LEGISLATION: Understand the laws and interpretations under various legislative motions and learn ways to implement advocacy efforts locally or at the state level.
  • ADVOCACY & LEGISLATION: Identify avenues for advocating for children with dyslexia and related learning disabilities.
  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Recognize the challenges facing students with learning or attentional challenges with respect to transitioning to college.
