Getting on the Same Page: Helping Families and Youth to “Think College”

March 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Free

Students with intellectual disability want to go to college – and they can! But they can’t get there alone. They need educators and family members who understand what skills are necessary to make it happen and will support them to achieve their goals. And they need resources to help them (and their families!) understand the college search and application process. Think College created the “Think Higher. Think College.” public awareness campaign to inform and educate teachers, school administrators, support professionals, college staff and faculty, families, and students themselves that college is an option for students with intellectual disability. The public awareness campaign includes new tools to make the process easy to understand and doable. Join us for this free webinar to learn about the current picture of inclusive higher education in the US, and hear from college students with intellectual disability from around the country, along with educators and family members, to learn how we can “Think Higher. Think College.” together.

 

During this webinar attendees will learn about:

 

The current situation regarding college options for students with intellectual disability.

 

New resources from the Think Higher. Think College. campaign.

 

Options that exist for students with intellectual disability, how to guide students to pursue college, and what the college experience is like for a student with intellectual disability.
