Taking the Next Step: Helping Students with Disabilities Transition from High School to College

The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction, Office of Special Education, along with the ND Department of Human Services, Disability Services Division – Vocational Rehabilitation and the ND Center for Persons with Disabilities at Minot State University, collaborated to develop this CD - Taking the Next Step: Helping Students with Disabilities Transition from High School to College.

This exciting CD was developed for students, parents and educators of students receiving special education who are considering a post secondary / college future. Following a brief introduction, the user can watch all or any one of three separate sections for students, parents and educators highlighting the differences between high school and college, success and access and the critical role students now assume. There is also a short Question and Answer section that further provides specific information for students wishing to utilize post secondary disability support services. Lastly, we have identified several references and resources for all parties to use, which address a variety of related topics and issues.

Inside the CD case, you’ll find a timeline referenced in the CD, which can be reproduced for students, parents and educators to use as a checklist and reference.

If you would like a copy of the CD, contact your local special education unit, Vocational Rehabilitation Office, any ND college disability services office or contact DPI Special Education at 701-328-2277.
