Join the Governor’s Committee on People with Disabilities via Zoom!
August 18, 2021

Join the Governor’s Committee on People with Disabilities (GCPD) August 18th at 10 a.m. (CST) as we cover Accommodations in College: Successfully Navigating the Transition. The transition to college is a big adjustment for most students. Along with the transitions that all students face, students with disabilities must also learn how to access accommodations and develop the support systems that they need to set themselves up for success. The presenters will explain the differences between accommodations in high school and college, how to access accommodations, and students’ rights and responsibilities in regards to those accommodations.

Presenters include Kristie Orr, PhD., Director of Disability Resources at Texas A&M University, and Alicia Guevara, Director of Accessibility Services and Resources at Lone Star College.
