IDEA rights do not follow your child into college and neither will her IEP.

Post-secondary schools have no obligation to create a document like the IEP and there is no protection under IDEA. But post-secondary schools are subject to Section 504 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Your child will need to make a decision whether to notify the college about her disability and request accommodations. Some students do - others choose not to.

Colleges assume that the student, not the parent, will be advocating for their needs. College-bound students need self advocacy skills.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate provides loads of resources, in-depth information guides, and good advice about what to look for and how to choose a continuing education program.

We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.

Considerations for Senior Year: 504 or IEP?

Parents should consider having a 504 plan from the public school in the last two years prior to attending college, since college disability offices recognize 504 and ADA, but not IDEA.

Dr. Marilyn Bartlett explains why transition from the IEP to a 504 plan in the freshman or sophomore year can be very important.
