Presentation Description

Seniors across the country are pushed to figure out what's next, but after a college decision has been made, are they receiving support to be prepared for this transition? Students with learning differences are attending college at an increasing rate and we have the opportunity to help them learn skills and strategies that can help them to be successful in college. Navigator PREP is the country’s first virtual transition program for neurodiverse students. Working with students and their parents on executive functioning, emotional regulation, and social skills, we can help families prepare for this life transition. Students can attend any college across the country and participate in this program as curriculum is individualized to each students needs. We will discuss Navigator PREP and introduce a tool that can help families determine college fit.

The College Match Scale- a tool designed to help students and their families determine college fit. The Match Scale looks at five areas across the college experience that will be crucial to understand services provided at a college, as well as providing guiding questions for families during their visit to a college campus.
