TMU’s Institute for Learning Differences to host event on services for prospective students on November 20

Thomas More University’s Institute for Learning Differences will host an event on Wednesday, Nov. 20 at 6:30 p.m., to discuss important differences between accommodations and support services for prospective students.

The event will be hosted in the Science Lecture Hall and is free and open to the public, including but not limited to parents with high school students and educators.

The discussion, presented by Director of the Institute for Learning Differences Angie Brinkman, MSW, will highlight important conversations and resources available to students with learning differences at Thomas More.

Parents and professionals working with students with learning differences, such as ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Special Learning Disabilities, are highly encouraged to attend.

The topics of discussion will include the changes in educational law and regulations, challenges students with learning differences may face in college, and the best practices in supporting students during this transition period. Following the presentation will be time for questions and answers.

“Navigating college can be a challenge for many students, especially for students with learning disabilities, ADHD, or autism spectrum disorder,” said Brinkman. “This presentation provides valuable information to parents and teachers about what support is provided in college for students with learning differences.”
