Navigating the College Search Process for Students With LD/ADHD/EFD
Paula Cocce M.Ed. is a Senior Lecturer in the Program for Advancement of Learning (PAL) at Curry College. PAL is metacognitive support for college students with ADHD. In addition to her work in PAL, she teaches classes in First Year Transitions. As Outreach Coordinator, she facilitates workshops on LD Awareness, Study Skills Strategies, Student Motivation and the College Search Process.
The transition from high school to college can be challenging for students and parents, as well as for those individuals guiding the process. Students with LD, ADHD, or Executive Function issues face even more difficulty as they explore post-secondary decisions. This workshop addresses: College readiness factors that should be considered for students with LD, ADHD &/or Executive Function difficulties; General and legal high school to college paradigm shifts; How to identify the appropriate college setting for these students; specific college factors and support programs that allow for a seamless and successful transition to college (e.g., summer programs, specialized advising, comprehensive academic support programs, first-year experience programming and online learning).
Participants will be provided with a file containing brochures and documents pertaining to the college search process for students with learning differences.
