That’s where Accessing College comes in. 

About Me

Hi, I’m Dan Jordan, MC NCC LPC, and I help parents prepare their student with a hidden disability to self-advocate and transition to college with the skills needed for success. 

I have over 10 years of experience in higher education making sure students with disabilities got the accommodations they needed. 

I’ve worked in a university counseling services center for the past 14 years (hint, still there) and have helped hundreds of students thrive and succeed in college. 

When you’re concerned about your students’ success, I’ve got your back. 

And I know what it’s like to be concerned for your students and scared for them. 

How do I know? I’m a dad to a college student with dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia. 

Your concerns for their college journey may not change, but how you help them does. 

I experienced subpar IEP transition planning.

I did  the IEP meetings and heard the school’s big talk about transition planning. That’s all it was big talk and not much else. 

I remember one meeting in my son’s junior year when a well-intentioned teacher told my son, “You know you’re going to have to ask for accommodations in college yourself, right?” 

That was it! Nothing more was said and nothing more offered. 

I thought, “what about specific information about college, how it differs from high school, why they have to ask themselves, and what kind of information does he need to give to the accessibility staff?” 

But I knew all that information because of my job, my college accessibility experience. My son was lucky to have my knowledge and expertise, but most parents are not former or even current employees of a college disability services office. There is a lot to know.

There’s more to college accommodations, transition, and success, than just ‘show me how to apply.’ A. Lot. More. But where do you start?

You don’t have to be confused any more. No need to search randomly for hours for information not knowing if it’s the right information or not. (and I’ve seen a lot of information that is inaccurate and misleading)

That can all end right here. 

You can have access to all my knowledge and experience too.

Once you have it, you can support them better with less stress, anxiety, and fear. If you have less stress and anxiety, then that means your student will too.  

About Our Products and Courses

Each product is specifically designed for busy schedules. The lessons are short so you can easily fit them into your schedule. Parents can listen to a course lesson while in the drop off or pick up line at school or doing yoga. 

Students can develop and practice essential skills between classes, at  lunch, at the campus gym, or even waiting for class to start. 

I make the complex easy and understandable. Every lesson breaks down the information so you can digest it and use it immediately. 

More importantly, courses boost knowledge, self-awareness, and skills needed for self-advocacy and success in college. 

These courses get immediate results that last.
