Navigating the College Landscape: Preparing High School Students with Attention Differences for the Transition

FREE LIVE EVENT - Navigating the College Landscape:  Preparing High School Students with Attention Differences for the Transition

Join Leslie, Tuesday, May 3rd @ 7pm ET, for an INTERACTIVE DISCUSSION on how to make a smooth and successful transition.

Navigating the college process can be overwhelming for most students, but it’s a particularly daunting challenge for those with learning and attention disorders. Bottom line? There is no test for your student to take to score college readiness. And if you need more proof?  According to the NCES (2020), 72% of post-secondary students with a disability drop out of college. Staggering, right?

I feel your worry and concern. I vividly remember watching my son navigate the transition from high school to college and all the responsibilities that came with it.  A wise man once told me that college is 70% life skills and 30% study skills, and it’s that 70% that sets you up for success in both learning and in life. To this day, I believe that to be true.

Academic skills are super important; don’t get me wrong. But in my experience, they are more easily learned than life skills.  As an Academic/Life coach for college students with ADHD and LD, I’ve seen my coaching students learn effective study skills. However, in my experience, day-to-day success tends to flow most from the life skills I help my students establish.

Topics in this 1- Hour Interactive Workshop Include:

  • Navigating the college’s Student/Disability Office and the essential questions needed to be asked.
  • Demystifying college accommodations – or why your student can’t bring his IEP to college -- and breakdown the supports and accommodations that may be available.
  • The essential life and school skills needed for student success OR how to truly measure college readiness.
  • How to utilize the college’s academic and tutoring resources and accommodations and get your student to use them!
  • Learning how to find the perfect academic coach and integrate them into your student’s college life.
  • The REAL college dorm, school and supply list NOT found at Bed, Bath and Beyond, and my ONE out-of-the box tip to make the transition seamless.
