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

The good news is that there are many resources that will guide you through this process and help answer your questions.

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.

College Accommodations: What Are My Child's Rights?

Learn about legal rights and responsibilities and read the Letter to Parents from the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights (OCR) about changes students with disabilities encounter as they make the transition from high school to postsecondary education.

Colleges assume that the student, not the parent, will be advocating for their needs. Self-Advocacy is learning how to speak up for yourself.
