Enrollment in postsecondary education is steadily increasing for students with disabilities. Yet, many students are not adequately prepared to deal with the academic and social demands of the college environment. Say YES to College is designed to ease the transition from high school to college by giving participants the opportunity to:
- Meet other students with disabilities who have successfully made the transition to college;
- Interact with a variety of speakers who will offer information and suggestions to make college a positive experience; and
- Connect with other high school students who have the same questions and concerns about their readiness for college life.
