From IDEA to ADA – Accommodations, Parent Communication, & Other Policies for College Students

When students leave high school, they depart a system that provides significant built-in holistic support services. As students – and their parents – enter college, they enter a new legal system that shifts methods of accessing support, communication with families, and responsibilities of professionals. These policy changes can be difficult to understand and daunting to initiate.

 

By focusing on issues related to accessing accommodations, understanding how to utilize those accommodations, dissecting policies including FERPA and HIPAA, and other unspoken policies in college, this session provides a better understanding of how the educational environment changes from high school to university.
