What’s Next? College and Career Exploration for students with learning differences



  • Is your son or daughter a rising high school junior or senior?
  • Has your child graduated high school with no solid plans for next steps?
  • Do they have a diagnosis of ADHD, Autism, or a learning disability?
  • Does the idea of “life after high school” make you or your child anxious?

If the answer to any of these questions is YES, you should plan to join us for our new workshop:

What’s Next?

College and Career Exploration for students with learning differences

Often the traditional post graduation track of high school to college is not the best fit for students who are unique learners.

Many students work hard in high school and have little interest in continuing in a traditional academic setting.

Others have skills and talents that are not ideally developed in college, but can be better utilized working and learning “on the job.”

And many students can benefit from a gap between educational opportunities to catch their breath and more clearly identify their career interests and goals.

Here at Child Development Partners, we understand and celebrate that there are many paths to a successful young adulthood. This program will support students and parents in learning more about and exploring:

  • Colleges and college programs designed to support students with learning differences
  • Options for a “gap year” and programs that support young adults exploring post high school education and work options.
  • Career training and development opportunities for students who learn best on the job

This three day workshop will support students in uncovering their innate interests, talents and skills and begin the process of mindfully applying these to a post high school career development plan.

Rather than feeling anxiety and panic about “what’s next?” after graduation, students who complete this workshop will be confident and prepared to pursue a post graduation plan that is best for their needs and abilities.
