Toolkit for Transition: Using Assistive Technology to Support the Transition to Postsecondary Education


February 22, 2018, Online


As a result of the large number of students transitioning to colleges with disabilities, it is imperative that teachers, school support staff, students, and parents understand the differences between colleges and the K-12 education environment. Assistive Technology is an integral part of this process. Having a toolkit of Assistive Technology tools as well as the knowledge can create a seamless transition for students going to college.
