The transition from high school is challenging for any student, but for young adults with disabilities,
it can be even more difficult. In addition to adjusting to
increased academic demands in an environment where there
is less structure and support, students have to navigate a
disability services system that is very different from the one
they knew in high school. But with the proper preparation,
students can enjoy success!
This practical guide explains how the system for
accommodations works, describes students' rights and
responsibilities within that system, and employs the voices
of seasoned professionals and college students to explain the
skills and strategies students should develop while they are in
high school to ensure success when they reach college.
As a bonus, it also offers answers to questions students with disabilities frequently ask about disclosing their disability in the admissions process.
