Accessible College:NEW CMT-Connect Webinar!

 

The transition to college is challenging for all students. For students with physical disabilities and/or health conditions, navigating the process and ensuring that needs will be met is essential. HNF is proud to announce that we have teamed up with Accessible College to host an informative and interactive webinar on Weds. 9/15 @7pm EDT to help provide families and individuals with an introduction to the skills and tools needed to ensure a successful transition to and through higher education.

Annie Tulkin is the Founder and Director of Accessible College, as well as an author and public speaker. She is an expert and coach in the area of college transition for students with physical disabilities and health conditions. Annie found her passion for working with students with disabilities when she was the Associate Director of the Academic Resource Center at Georgetown University. While at Georgetown, Annie discovered that many of the students she worked with had not received transition support to prepare them for the transition to college with a physical disability and/or health condition.

“We understand the unique needs of students with physical disabilities and health conditions and the challenges that may arise as they plan for their transition to college. Because colleges and universities provide varying levels of support and accommodations for students with disabilities and health conditions, Accessible College’s services help to bridge the gaps, empowering students and families to effectively work together to create positive educational experiences for students and support college success.” – Annie Tulkin Founder & Director
