Transitions Programs for Students with Disabilities
We understand that making the transition to college life can be a big challenge. That’s why we have organized events to help make that transition a little easier. Our transition team visits area high schools and agencies and provides presentations about our services. Watch this Transitions Programs video for more information.
Every spring, we offer Discovery Days, a chance for high school students with accessibility needs to visit our main campus and find out more about Fanshawe and Accessibility Services. Students get to try out new technology, learn about our services, win prizes, and meet successful college students. It’s a fun day for everyone!
Fanshawe hosts an Open House in both the spring and the fall. You can tour the college, speak to professors and students in many different programs, attend an accessibility services information session, tour the residence and learn about college services. It’s a great way to see what the college has to offer.
Fast Forward to Fanshawe
Students with disabilities who will be starting their programs in September can access our virtual Fast Forward to Fanshawe videos in early September. These videos are designed to help you get ready for your first semester as an adult college student. We will have interactive Q&A sessions for both general workshops as well as a specialized session for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. To register for a session, please contact Counselling and Accessibility Services or call 519-452-4282.
STEPping into Fanshawe
Summer Transition Experiential Program for Students with Mental Health Concerns.
The transition from high-school to college can be exciting and stressful for anybody. For students who are already coping with mental health concerns, we want to offer an opportunity for extra support in the transition process.
This year, Stepping into Fanshawe will be offered virtually! Informative video sessions will be available starting August 31, 2020. There will also be an interactive Q&A session including a student panel on September 10th. The cost? FREE!! To register contact email@example.com or call 519-452-4282.
Sometimes students with higher needs would like to discuss their particular situation before making a decision about attending college. We offer individual pre-admission interviews with an Accessibility Services counsellor for those students who need a more individualized discussion.
