With Certified Holistic Health Counselor, Maria Rickert Hong, and Aaron Rakow and Lauren Merritt of College Steps.
Wednesday, March 27th
If your child has a neurodevelopmental disorder and/or learning disability, the thought of sending him or her off to college may cause you anxiety!
That’s why I’m happy to present to you College Steps, a non-profit that provides customized, college support for students with learning and social challenges such as learning disabilities, autism and executive functioning deficits.
College Steps supports students to achieve success in post-secondary education, work and life by providing personalized college support for students with learning and social challenges.
Their student-centered support utilizes peer mentoring and multidisciplinary collaboration on campus.
Their Individualized College Plan (ICP) is developed to compliment or pick up where the student’s Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) may have left off that ultimately serves as a road map.
An ICP outlines areas of need and tracking progress throughout the student’s college experience and includes the following:
- Academic enrichment
- Social involvement
- Independent living
- Pre-employment training
Join us to ask Aaron and Lauren your own questions!
