Previous experiences have found us working with special education students that have required a set of particular skills. Special education students need to have a consultant that understands what an IEP is, what testing needs to be completed during senior year and that all important question of: do I self-disclose. Different colleges offer students various types of assistance. Some offer special education students ongoing support while others offer study skills and counseling. Some colleges offer services as part of the overall tuition while some charge additional fees. Here at urcollegesearch.org, we address those issues which impact your special education student.
We at urcollegesearch.org, know what a 48H form is. A 48H form lists all courses accepted by the NCAA as core courses, from a high school. Athletes must be very careful when making course selections from year to year. Athletes must be made aware of how many college prep./core courses they must complete in order to qualify to play sports at the college level. Many athletes are also unaware of the GPA and SAT/ACT requirements. We consider it our responsibility to make all of our athletes aware of the framework they need to work within, in order to participate in sports post high school, regardless of whether the school is D 1, II or III.
Remember, packages are inclusive of all services; regardless of how often you call, email or text. We do not charge by the hour although we do have a separate fee just for essay development and separate 3 hour sessions.
