HCC’s Project Access Hosts December 6 Workshop on Transitioning High School Students with Disabilities to a Postsecondary Education

November 25, 2013

(Columbia, MD) – Howard Community College’s (HCC) Project Access program hosts a workshop on transitioning high school students with disabilities to a postsecondary education on Friday, December 6, 2013, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in room 150 of the college’s Health Sciences Building.

A presentation by Dr. Janet Medina, associate professor of education at McDaniel College, will start the workshop, followed by a conversation with high school psychologists and disability support services representing six Maryland counties. The group will discuss assessments given to high school students and the strategies used to translate those assessments into a plan for their postsecondary education.

Tickets for the workshop may be purchased at the door for $50, with proceeds going towards Project Access operating expenses. Continuing Education Credit (.3) will be available for attendees.
