Parent/Guardian Track at College Bound 2011
You are invited!!!

College Bound (CB) is pleased to extend an invitation to parents and guardians of students attending College Bound 2011. College Bound promotes and supports the success of students with disabilities preparing to attend 2 and 4 year colleges. The Parent/Guardian Track offers the opportunity for parents and guardians to acquire valuable transition information and explore aspects of their changing role as their children prepare for college.

Parents and guardians participate in sessions and activities to complement College Bound student sessions. Sessions include information and resources related to:

Technology Demonstration
  • IDEA to ADA
  • New parent/guardian role
  • Rights and responsibilities
  • Assistive technologies
  • Self determination & student involvement
  • College disability supports & accommodations
  • Organization & study skills
  • Financial aid and resources
  • Networking with transition professionals and college service providers

Parents and guardians consistently report that they leave our program with a better understanding of how to support their child in their transition from high school to college. Recent parent and guardian comments include:

  • "Wonderfully candid!", "Appreciate willingness to honestly address questions"
  • "Good variety of presenters and institutions: another rare look behind the scenes"
  • "Learned great steps to help me guide my student to be successful in college"
  • "So much better informed to guide my student during the next year!"

Lodging for parents is held off-campus at the Holiday Inn University at 900 Prices Fork Road. See Lodging page for more information.
