Our College Planning and Transition Conference for Neurodiverse Learners is one of only a few
full-day college conferences in the nation that is designed and produced specifically for
learners who are neurodiverse (and the family members, allies, and transition professionals
who support them) who have an interest in postsecondary educational pursuits. During our
Conference, topics, and discussions include but are not limited to:

  • the college search and college admissions application planning;

  • college application and admissions advice;

  • evaluating available academic support and college success; services in relation to need;

  • assessing a good college fit;

  • assistive technology and learning strategies to improve academic success;

  • accessing accommodations in college;

  • accessing public, private, and community services to support college transition;

  • college transition best practices at both the K-12 and the Post-Secondary Education 
    (PSE) level;

  • addressing issues relating to a student's psychosocial readiness for the college 
    transition;

  • discovering what can be learned from current college students who are neurodiverse
    and their families.

 

This year's Let's Talk LD 2020 College Planning and Transition Conference for Neurodiverse
Learners has been reimagined. This year we have also challenged our speakers and attendees
to consider with great seriousness the kind of consciousness-raising that must occur, both
within and outside of the neurodiverse ecosystem, to create actionable means of addressing
complex issues of the injustice faced by learners who are neurodiverse as they journey from
college student access, through college student success, to career success. As stakeholders in the college transition and/or Special Education ecosystem, we too must engage in critical
self-reflection and consider the role that we play in impeding the advancement of learners who
are neurodiverse. If we are to consider fully the impact of these inequities, we must also
consider how we might work collaboratively to identify and remedy educational and social
injustices that undermine the college access, college success, and career success that
neurodiverse BIPOC students and other adversely impacted students of color face.
