Take your child’s self-advocacy to the next level with the Parent Coaching Series. This course helps parents learn how to coach their child in developing the skills and knowledge needed to request accommodations in college. Self-Advocacy for Higher Education: Parent Coaching Series beaks down the process into an easy to follow, step-by-step method.

Filled with tips and helpful suggestions, each step moves your college-bound child closer to effectively explaining their learning disability and requesting the accommodations they need. When you can explain those needs, you can get the accommodations easily.

Did you know that when in college, only 1-20 students will ask for the accommodations they need? That’s 5%. There are many barriers students with learning disabilities face when going to college. Most important are those self-imposed barriers, including how students think of themselves and their disability, fear of being treated or thought of differently by faculty, and the stigma. Even if they decide to seek accommodations, students are faced with not knowing who to ask, and more importantly, not knowing how to explain their disability effectively, what they need, and why they need it. They are not comfortable with their disability and have trouble communicating about it.

The solution: a simple, practical, step by step method to help students become more self-aware and communicate effectively about their disability.

Those who know their disability well and are comfortable saying it aloud get what they need, use what works for them, and ask for help when they need it. Self-advocacy relates to staying in school, doing better, and getting a degree. The bottom line is self-advocacy works.

Self-Advocacy for Higher Education: Parent Coaching Series can help your college-bound student get the self-advocacy skills they need to get the accommodations they deserve.
