It’s almost that time of the year when students and parents alike start their anxiety-inducing journey into college applications. As parents of a student living with paralysis, this season has the added concern of making accommodations work in a college setting. Don’t reach for the paper bag yet!
The Reeve Foundation has partnered with Accessible College to provide parents and students with free consultation sessions to prepare you to transition into college.
Please read all about it on our College Transition with Accessible College blog or contact an Information Specialist at 1-800-539-7309 or through our website to learn more or request your free sessions.

    I went to college. I study for two months. I really like the training system. Every day at home they are asked to write a case study on various issues here. In addition, since the new year I am undergoing my first internship.

    I am glad you enjoy your experience! College is a great opportunity and paralysis should never be an obstacle. Good luck with your internship!

    This partnering with Accessible College makes me so happy!  Back when I was at Connecticut College in the 90s, a good friend became paralyzed while skiing.  There was not one dorm which could house her accessibly so they did (as they needed to) a complete renovation of a first floor dorm, where we all got to live together.  Amazing!  But certainly took a long time!  Good luck to your children headed to college!
