College Share & Panel
Neuhaus Education Center’s College Share and College Panel programs give college-bound students the opportunity to hear success stories from peers who have achieved higher-education goals despite having learning differences. It’s a hopeful and inspiring resource that encourages both students and their families.
All events will be virtual until further notice. Please check your confirmation email for event information.
Join us for an exciting and transformative event: “Navigating the College Transition with Confidence!”
Perhaps the most significant shift kids make in their lives is moving from high school to college. Alarmingly, nearly 25% of students end up back at home within two semesters. This statistic may be higher for students with learning differences, making the transition even more challenging.
At this event, we will address this crucial phase in a young adult’s life and equip college-bound students with the tools they need to succeed. We’ll focus on building strong executive function skills, fostering familiarity with the college environment, and establishing a robust support system. With these pillars in place, students will be ready to tackle the new challenges that college life presents.
Evan Weinberger, President & CEO of Staying Ahead of the Game (SAOTG), will be our esteemed speaker. He will offer invaluable tips to students, parents, educators, and support professionals, drawing from SAOTG’s proprietary and research-driven program. You’ll leave with actionable strategies that can be implemented immediately.
Don’t miss this opportunity to empower college-bound young adults and help them avoid common pitfalls. Let’s ensure they thrive in their new academic journey. Reserve your spot now!

7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. (CT) / Virtual presentation via Zoom
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.
