Preparing Students with Disabilities for Successful College Transition

March 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The transition to college can be challenging for students with disabilities, but with the proper preparation, they can enjoy success! Author and Columbia University learning consultant Elizabeth C. Hamblet explains how the system for accommodations works at college, describes students’ rights and responsibilities within that system, and shares what the research says are the skills and knowledge correlated with success at college. She also reviews the paperwork students need to apply for accommodations and discusses what accommodations may be available.

Elizabeth C. Hamblet, a learning consultant working with students in Columbia University’s disability services office, has worked at the college level for nearly two decades. In addition to working as a college consultant, she is a nationally-requested speaker on the topic of preparing students with disabilities for success at college. Hamblet is the author of From High School to College: Steps to Success for Students With Disabilities, and her work has appeared in numerous journals and online platforms, including Understood.org, ADDitudeMag.com, and Grown and Flown.
