When students with disabilities embark on their college journey, they will need to manage their disability and their accommodations without the help of teachers or family. This will require some good-old-fashioned communications skills. Communicating effectively can be tricky business, so students who have the opportunity to practice and hone their skills during high school will be at an advantage when they get to college. This week’s FREE tool is a table with information on teaching students what to say, when to say it, how to say it, and to whom. The table appears in “From High School to College: Steps to Success for Students With Disabilities,” a brand-new guide for helping students with disabilities transition to college.
