SUPPORT THE UNIQUE NEEDS OF YOUR SPECIAL NEEDS STUDENT
For many Connecticut families, the post-secondary options available don’t support the learning style and unique needs of their child. College Steps customizes the support your child receives, ensuring they get the right support at the right time.
Connecticut College offer excellent academic support and accessibility services. College Steps helps students access these disability services and advocate for themselves. We also provide additional support for areas that aren’t covered by colleges, including independent living skills. This collaboration ensures your child receives the personalized support they deserve.
To ensure our supports meet your student’s special needs, we work with you and your child to create a personalized plan. Each Connecticut College support plan is designed to compliment your child’s goals and to increase their academic success through a pre-college Individualized Education Program (IEP) and peer-mentoring, and social support through Pre-ETS, employment training, and independent living mentorship.
We recognize how important strong family connections are for students. Our approach includes daily communication logs, monthly planning meetings, and regular feedback sessions. This structure helps to ensure the special needs student, their family, and their larger support systems are working together in the best way possible
The level of dedicated and customized support that College Steps provides to special needs students transitioning to Connecticut College or employment is unmatched. As a result, the outcomes our students achieve are unprecedented. Learn for yourself how College Steps has transformed the learning trajectory of the students we support.
