Product Description

The transition from high school to college is a significant turning point in life, but it can come with unique challenges if you are a student who is blind or visually impaired. The revised and updated College Bound helps students prepare for their new life in college, develop useful skills, and negotiate for and coordinate appropriate services. This large-print, full-color guide also includes strategies for organization, time management, research, studying, and self-advocacy. You’ll also find information about college application procedures, navigating the web, and assistive technology. College Bound provides a roadmap for a successful journey through college life.
