Summer Transitional Enrichment Program (STEP)

Parent Support Module: Supporting your student as he or she prepares for college

The transition to college is an exciting time but can also bring up anxiety for you and your student. As you know, students with ASD may face greater challenges as they prepare for living and learning at college. You may be wondering how you can help your student now. As soon as drop-off day, you will begin to explore ways to encourage your student to continue practicing techniques to better manage a variety of social environments. At the close of the program, you and your student will also be offered an overview of your student's progress during a wrap-up meeting and personalized assessment. Both the wrap-up meeting and the assessment will be your guide to continue to assist your student as they complete high school.
