Transitioning from High School to College.
Kolvitz, Marcia, Ed.
These four conference papers from the Biennial Conference on Postsecondary Education for Persons who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing focus on transitioning from high school to college. The first paper, "Transitioning Collaboration with Schools and Vocational Rehabilitation" (Catherine Wilson and Wayne Giese), describes the North Carolina School for the Deaf's collaboration with the state vocational rehabilitation agency. The second paper, "Transition Planning: A High School-Postsecondary Connection" (Theresa Smythe and others), discusses the partnership between the Missouri School for the Deaf and St. Louis Community College. A transition workshop organizer and agenda is included. "Your Parents Are Not with You Anymore" (Charlotte O. Kirby and Tris Ottolino), describes the Program for Hearing Impaired, a one-year transition program following high school graduation which provides young adults who are deaf or hard of hearing with the realistic opportunity to evaluate and improve their academic, vocational, social, and independent living skills. The last paper, "Perspective on Liberal Arts Learning: First Year Seminar" (Catherine Andersen and others), describes a seminar that teaches freshmen or transfer students at Gallaudet University study skills and time management, resource utilization, and the societal functions of institutions of higher learning.
