Happy graduate and his familyIt's time to contemplate the dreaded "C" word - whether your child is 14 years old and you are starting to think about college or you are a tireless self-advocate who is determined to take the next logical step upward in your life.

Parents of students with disabilities are often surprised to learn that their college-bound kids are no longer eligible for services.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will find information to help you plan ahead, choose a postsecondary school, find ways to finance continuing education and advice about challenges students with disabilities will encounter as they make the transition from high school to postsecondary education.

Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
