Description

Students with ADHD and LD face social and legal challenges that put them at high risk of failure during the transition from high school to college, despite their intelligence and extraordinary potential. Attorney Tudisco will discuss how to reduce the chance of failure, including: making the most of transition planning, converting 504 plans to reasonable accommodation requests, and applying for high-stakes testing accommodations. He will also cover how to provide structure, support, and accountability for students away at school.

Robert M. Tudisco is a practicing attorney and adult diagnosed with ADHD, and has written extensively on special education law and disability advocacy. Mr. Tudisco is a frequent media resource on ADHD-related topics, including CBS News, ABC News, The Today Show, CNN, the BBC, and has contributed to the New York Times Magazine, USA Today, and the Seattle Times. He also wrote the legal expert column for ADDitude Magazine.
