Gain Essential Knowledge and Skills to Excel in Supporting Your Clients

As a licensed professional counselor for over 20 years, I understand the importance of providing comprehensive support to college students with mental health conditions. That’s why I created the course Intersection of Counseling and Accessibility: The Ethics of Understanding the Who, What, When, and Why of Accommodation Requests.

The Missing Piece in College Mental Health Support

Did you know that 69% of students with learning disabilities no longer think they have a disability upon graduating high school? Or that 76% of students with learning disabilities attending college never request accommodations? This lack of awareness and understanding can have a profound effect on their academic success.
