But you may have questions about what happens for these students when they get to college, where the shifts in prevailing laws result in a disability accommodation system that works differently, the academic demands increase, and some of the supports students have used in high school won't be available.

The good news is that research shows that the proper preparation can help students make a smooth college transition But the planning needs to be rooted in a thorough understanding of the changes they'll encounter in the college environment.
