If you are starting to think about college, you are probably asking many questions. How do you help your son or daughter prepare for college? What supports and services will be available? How do you find the right fit for your student’s needs? Join us for answers and frank discussion as we review the college planning, preparation, and placement process. We’ll focus on essential skills for college success, improving college readiness, the types of accommodations and services for standardized testing and college, and finding the “right fit”. Whether your student is just entering high school or starting senior year, there is much you can do to promote college transition and success skills.The College Consulting Collaborative (Joan Wittan, Sue Cook Christakos, Kyle Kane and Lori Vise) is a partnership of independent educational consultants who work with students who have a wide variety of learning differences.
