Determining Fit: Evaluating a College Based on Supports Offered

A major shift in colleges has been the introduction of more supportive resources for students who learn differently. With more programs popping up, it can often be confusing about how to evaluate services, compare them to other colleges, and align them with student need.

 

In this session, participants are introduced to a rubric system to help rank services based on the intensity and depth of resources at colleges, while also learning specific questions to ask universities to ensure support matches the profile of the student.
