Transitioning from High School to College

This guide by has some technology suggestions for students with a variety of disabilities to consider as they prepare for post-secondary education.

NCWD published this booklet about making the transition from high school to college, and did a thorough job of offering some resources as well as some checklists of items to think about/accomplish.

Thinking about what you will do after high school can be both an exciting and scary experience. The number of students with disabilities attending college is increasing each year. Students who attend college demonstrate growth in many areas: academic skills, social skills, independence, self-advocacy skills, and self-confidence. Students find that they need to begin planning for college while in high school.

Getting into College: What Students with Disabilities Want to Know is a resource that describes the difference between high school and college as well as how to prepare for college while still in high school. Made available by the HEATH Resource Center, this resource is great for parents and educators as well.
