NJCLD symposium on transition to higher ed
What are the problems-issues-concerns and how should educators address them?
The US National Joint Committee on Learning Disabilities will hold a symposium focused on the transitino for high school to post-secondary education. It is slated to be held on line on Monday 12 September 2022, beginning at 11 AM EDT.
The National Joint Committee on Learning Disabilities (NJCLD) affirms the importance of transition as a critical component of successfully progressing from secondary school to college or university for students with learning disabilities. Although NJCLD has addressed secondary to postsecondary education transition planning in a previous paper (NJCLD, 1994), several challenges remain. This paper includes information about the laws that affect students with learning disabilities at each level, documentation required, key participants, and programs and resources to assist in the transition process.
