Event description

Description

Applying to college can be complicated for any student, more so for students with a learning disability or ADHD. Should students disclose disabilities in their applications? What supports does a student need? How can families find out what services schools offer? How do you find a school with the right fit? Deena Maerowtiz, Principal, College & Graduate School Advising at The Bertram Group, will discuss how to find colleges with the right support programs, how students can convey their strengths in applications, and how students can advocate for themselves at college.
