Course Description

This 8-week interactive training course covers what IECs need to know to effectively work with neurodiverse students in the college and postsecondary planning process. If you are an IEC who would like to begin or enhance your work with students who learn differently, this course is for you!  During each 2-hour session (11:00 am - 1:00 pm), we will examine some unique characteristics of the families of neurodiverse college-bound students, and we will cover practical applications in working with this student population.  Topics include: an overview of specific learning disabilities, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and related disorders; dealing with undiagnosed/suspected learning differences; gifted and twice-exceptional students; fostering independence and self-advocacy; assessment instruments; the neuropsychological report; and evaluating college learning support services and programs. The expected time commitment (outside of class) each week is approximately 4 hours.
