The transition from high school to college can be a confusing time for students, parents, and educators. From documentation requirements to evaluating assistive technology needs, this presentation will provide an overview of disability support services on a college campus and strategies for a successful transition. The presentation will include information about assistive technology (AT) and accessible educational materials (AEM) and how to acquire these in a post-secondary setting.
