The transition from high school to college is challenging for all students. However students with disabilities once protected and supported by IDEA policy may be unaware of the challenges facing them once they enter higher education.

The transition from high school to college is challenging for all students. However students with disabilities once protected and supported by IDEA policy may be unaware of the challenges facing them once they enter higher education. Parents also have a new role to play when students with disabilities enter college. Support for students with disabilities on the college campus looks different, feels different, and must be asked for by the student not the parent. College students with disabilities coming into a new level of awareness report the strategies, successes, and the ways that they've learned to navigate higher education. The new website http://www.going-to-college.org/. will be introduced.
