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;
*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 Learner has been reimagined. This year we have also challenged our presenters and conference 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.
