These resources are intended to be used by teachers and families supporting transition to college for students with learning differences.
These materials are available at no cost thanks to generous funding support from the Oak Foundation and the William R. Kenan Charitable Trust and can be downloaded from this website. We only ask that you (1) appropriately reference materials that you distribute to students and others and (2) provide feedback after using the resources. We will soon be adding a link to this site so you can send comments, additional materials, and ideas to the curriculum developers for expanding/refining the resources. We hope to continually revise these curriculum materials based on ongoing feedback.
