2018 College Planning and Transition Conference
About the 2018 College Planning & Transition Conference for Students with Learning Differences
We have come a long way in making sure students with disabilities enroll in college, but there is still much work to do. Students with learning disabilities enroll in four-year schools at half the rate as those in the general population, and fewer of them are graduating. While many students enter college unprepared for the demands of college-level work, students with learning disabilities can find that the increased demands, coupled with the lack of structure and support to which they may have been accustomed, can present additional challenges. It is important for families, educators, and involved professionals to know about the changes in disability services at the college level and what supports and skills can help students be successful.
The 2018 Let’s Talk LD College Planning and Transition Conference

the Summit View Schools
This one-day conference, produced by Let’s Talk LD (http://www.LetsTalkLD.org) in partnership with the Summit View School (http://www.SummitView.org), is being developed to serve several purposes:
1) To create an opportunity for students (with learning differences) Grades 11 and 12 (and their parents), to access topical information designed to ease their transition to college;
2) To encourage and prepare students (with learning differences) Grades 8-10 (and their parents) to begin the process of strategic college planning, and;
3) To create an opportunity for currently enrolled college students (with learning differences) to access topical information and strategies to enhance their college success.This conference is free to registered conference attendees, as it is our mandate to make this experience available to all families.
Seats are limited for the Conference, and this year's Conference is already on track to be twice as large as last year's Conference! If you are interested in attending, please register. For the first 75 people taking advantage of "Early Bird" Registration (through August 7th), you will be eligible to be entered into a Raffle for a Kindle Fire 7 Tablet.

Our College Planning and Transition Conference for Students with Learning Differences would not be possible without the generosity of our Thought Leaders. The social impact of their contributions will be felt well beyond September 29th.
We also recognize that without the generous financial support of our Corporate Sponsors, we would be very limited in our ability to amplify the social impact we are attempting to achieve. We wanted to extend a Special Thanks to our Conference's Corporate Sponsors:
