Postsecondary Inclusion: What's New?
If your son or daughter has graduated from high school, but does not have the academic ability or correct diploma to attend college, you may want to know about new postsecondary options for your young adult. Across the country, colleges and universities are beginning inclusion programs for students with intellectual disabilities. These programs are designed for students who may not be able to get a degree but still would benefit from a college environment. These are usually certificate programs that allow the students to audit classes and participate in the social and community aspect of college. These programs are designed with job and career training as an end result. Not every college offers a program, but if you want more information, please let me know and I will follow up with additional details.
