The college process can be daunting for students and their families, especially when the students have learning, behavioral, social or attentional challenges. Increasing college readiness skills and selecting a college that’s the “right fit” are critical for a positive transition. Janine Kelly, JD, and Deborah List, PhD, will provide useful information on how to help your high school students develop the academic, social-emotional and independence skills necessary for college, and how to select a college program that will support their continued success.
Janine, a special education advocate, has been supporting children with disabilities and their families for over 12 years, advising them on all aspects of the IEP/Section 504 process and how to prepare for post secondary school transitions. Deborah, a former university professor and student advisor, lectures on student accessibility, mental health and disability needs. They are partners in College Access and Beyond, LLC, which supports students and their families as they plan for their futures beyond high school.
