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

IDEA does not follow a child into post-secondary programs. However, students do have rights and protections under Section 504 and ADA.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you'll find information and resources about college and continuing education, accommodations after high-school, and self-advocacy.

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