Easterseals College Navigator program identifies barriers, advocates for needs, and creates a supportive environment that will improve outcomes for students with disabilities completing their secondary education. While colleges offer a menu of disability supports, they are not guaranteed as they are in high school. College supports are hardly individualized and often fall short of what incoming freshman with disabilities require in order to be successful.
We are currently providing all College Navigator Services and Employment Services remotely via video conference through Zoom. We are also meeting with students in-person with safety measures in place and agreed upon by both parties. A hybrid approach of remote and in-person services can be also designed to best meet the needs of each student.
Help identify potential barriers and problem solve around them with disability services
Advocate with the student on identifying their needs and being able to explain them to disability services
Create a supportive environment between the college and student to ensure success
Improve outcomes for students with disabilities completing higher education
These services will be delivered working one-on-one with students on campus. Goals will be tailored to the student’s specific needs and hours will be based on those needs.
