The Big Picture View Comparing and Contrasting High School and College

The transition from high school to college is huge – it goes beyond more challenging academics into a completely new environment, social expectations, independence in life skills, self-driven accommodations, and more. It can be difficult for families to evaluate the demands this will put on a student’s existing social and executive functioning skills, and mental health.

This session provides insights on the major shifts from high school to college while providing a tool families can use to anticipate challenges and simplify the college choice and evaluation process.
