As a parent of a student with cochlear implants, your role changes as your student transitions from high school to college. Ultimately many responsibilities will shift to your student, particularly requesting and receiving accommodations.
You can prepare your student for a successful transition by helping him or her develop self-advocacy skills to face challenges associated with the transition to college.
This section provides information to help you support your student during his or her transition to college and information about accommodations that may be available to your student. You can read more about your student’s legal rights to accommodations in college in the Legal Rights section.
