Planning for College Success
"Planning for College Success" (PCS) is a curriculum model designed by Sharon Downs, M.S., for a course intended to assist deaf and hard of hearing students during their initial introduction to college life. This program allows students to work one-on-one with a counselor to plan for their college success. The program includes short-term goals and long-term goals, weekly activities for students to complete, documentation of accomplishments, and information about how to get other services that are offered on campus. The PCS program helps students adjust successfully to their new life at college, but it requires their participation. Regular meetings are scheduled between students and their counselors. The program includes self-rating scales for analyzing areas of personal strengths, getting better grades, making wise choices, problem-solving steps, personal responsibilities, time management, goal setting, and other information.
