Can I Make It? A Transition Program for College Bound Learning Disabled Students and Their Parents.
Arnold, Ellen; Czamanske, Jackie
The metaphor of a family road trip is used to describe a 10-week seminar program at the Rochester Institute of Technology (New York) for learning disabled high school students and their parents in preparation for student transition to college. The small group format (maximum eight families) allows for both whole group and separate (parents and students) group activities. Self evaluation and metacognition are stressed throughout. Sessions focus on the following: orientation; self advocacy; admissions; student panel (current learning disabled college students share their experiences); problem solving; study skills; letting go; and evaluation.
