Transitional Counseling for the Disabled: High School to College
I am an educator and psychologist with over 35 years experience working with students of all types and degrees of disability. I provide counseling to high school students and their parents to foster a smooth transition into college. I address not only academic concerns, but, more importantly, the mutual role shifting that must occur for the parents and the student to smoothly move into the next stage of life.
In addition I can help navigate the regulatory differences between high school and college in regards to confidentiality, level of parental involvement, self-advocacy, mandatory steps to obtain and keep priority registration, types of available accommodations, and realistic expectations to have in regards to class load, homework, contact with faculty and more. I am fluent in American Sign Language.
I offer one-to-one Skype counseling sessions to tackle the questions, concerns, and misconceptions about college BEFORE the student is the college system.
