From High School to College

To Order


"Excellent Book ... Provides a clear roadmap to prepare students with disabilities for a successful transition to college.

From High School to College: Steps to Success for Students with Disabilities
by Elizabeth Hamblet (ISBN 13: 978-0-86586-520-4, 202 pages, soft cover, ($29.95) provides a clear path to prepare students with disabilities for a successful transition to college.

College is a different world from high school. The laws, expectations, and culture around disability services and accommodations are different, too.

Elizabeth Hamblet, a Columbia University Learning Specialist/Consultant and recognized transition speaker and writer, has written a unique step-by-step guide that is an essential resource for college-bound students, their families, and the special educators and school counselors who work with them.

Elizabeth Hamblet breaks the process down into six logical steps.

Chapter 1. Establish a Foundation in the Law and Research. Understand the different laws in college and what the research says about what makes college students successful (or not).

Chapter 2. Know Students' Responsibilities and Rights. Learn what students have to do to get access to accommodations at college, what additional responsibilities they have, and what rights the system offers them.

Chapter 3. Pave the Way to College. Learn about self-determination and self-advocacy, two skills closely associated with school success, and how parents and guardians can help student develop them.

Chapter 4. Anticipate the College Environment. Learn about the challenges students with disabilities face in the college academic environment and strategies that can help.

Chapter 5. Find the Right College. Learn about the college admissions process and disability disclosure, and get suggestions about how to research available accommodations at students' target schools.

Chapter 6. Secure the Right Accommodations. Get a sense of what paperwork your student will need to request accommodations and what accommodations are likely to be available (or not).

Reviews: From High School to College: Steps to Success for Students with Disabilities

"In From High School to College: Steps to Success for Students with Disabilities, Elizabeth Hamblet focuses on the natural baton-passing needed for college-bound teens and shares invaluable information about accommodations and skills that can help students succeed in college."

"As an executive function coach, I appreciate the insights Hamblet shares on three topics: what it takes to succeed and how to build a strong foundation in high school; knowing what the challenges will be in college; and how to find the right college match (chapters 3, 4, and 5)."
