Life After High School webinar

Life After High School:
Finding the Right Fit for Neurodiverse Learners

 

Wednesday, March 10, 2021
11:00 a.m.  – 12:15 p.m.

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are a multitude of paths that students can take after high school to achieve their goals in life. Naturally, parents want to see their children develop into resilient, capable young adults, living as independently as possible. Obtaining a college degree is one way to achieve this, but there are others.

 

In recent years, many colleges and postsecondary programs have broadened their services to become more inclusive of all learners. In this presentation, we will examine the wide range of higher education models for students with Autism, ADHD, and language-based learning challenges, as well as for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. There are programs for all learning styles; some lead to vocational certificates or certificates of completion, while others lead to 4-year college degrees and beyond. We will discuss the range of college support services available to students and ways to evaluate whether a college will provide what your child needs.
