Transitioning to College. . .

Going to college means a lot of big changes in a short time. That’s exciting — and challenging. The more prepared students are for college before arriving, the better off they (and their parents) will be.  Being prepared is especially important for students with disabilities.

WINAHEAD transition presentations and resources are found below.
