Speaker: Angie Maxey, Director of Access and Disability Services at University St. Thomas
Navigating the transition to college for a child with a learning disability can bring up many questions. “Whom is it important to connect with at the college?” “Should we disclose that our child has a learning disability?” Join Angie Maxey, Director of Access and Disability Services at the University of St. Thomas as she speaks about what to expect with a transition to college and how it could be helpful to connect with a disability office.

For more than 20 years, Neuhaus Education Center, The Briarwood School, and the Houston Branch of The International Dyslexia Association (HBIDA) have hosted College Panel, an annual event where high school students have the opportunity to hear directly from current college students about how to successfully navigate college with learning differences. These students will share information about their colleges, programs available at their schools, and their strategies for success.
This panel is an inspiration for freshmen and sophomores and a necessity for juniors and seniors in high school who are planning to attend college.
