August 23rd, 12pm ET
Learn what you as parents as well as your students need to know to facilitate a smooth transition from high school to college. We will review the differences between special education and 504 accommodations in high school and reasonable accommodations mandated by federal civil rights law, and the college search and admissions process for students with learning disabilities. We will discuss the changing role of parents and the responsibilities of students as independent learners and self-advocates.
This webinar will be recorded, and a copy of the recording will be sent to all registrants. This webinar is free to LDA Members, and $15 for nonmembers.
