Course Review

Critical Info

Find out how critical this mini-course will be as you and your teen plan for new experiences at college! You have unlimited access to this course, so you and your teen can review the information as often as needed. Each chapter is designed to be covered easily, quickly, yet thoroughly enough for your teen to head to college armed with the information they need.

So many questions!

New rules will apply at college, and parents will need to step away. Are you ready to let your child take control of the situations at college? Have you prepared your child to advocate for themselves? Does your child understand his or her disability and the accommodations they need for college? Is your child prepared to handle college without an accommodation they may no longer qualify for? Do you know how to arrange updated documentation and why you may need it and how to find out if you need it?

Potential Barriers

I can help you know exactly what potential questions you might expect from Disability Services, what the professors really need to know from you, and how you can make your schedule work for you.

Accessible to all

This course explains all those changes and offers tips and suggestions to give parents and young adults the added advantage of not having to learn about college expectations the hard way, and it’s only $37 so it’s accessible to all parents who are worried about their child’s future!
