The transition from high school to college can be difficult for any student, but students with disabilities face a unique set of obstacles on their way to postsecondary education. Thankfully, there are many ways you can prepare for the transition.
At IHECP, we’re dedicated to raising expectations of what students with disabilities can accomplish. Not just in a higher education setting, but as members of our community. Our team has extensively researched other established and successful programs across the U.S. and Canada to create a hybrid program that has become the first truly inclusive college program in the state of Colorado.
The transition to college is a big milestone, but for students with disabilities, the additional stress of finding a college with inclusive services that fit their needs can be overwhelming. Looking for the right inclusive college is a journey, and IHECP is devoted to helping students on this journey by giving them the resources they need to choose the school that will best serve them.
There are a few questions that students and families can ask themselves when deciding which inclusive college is the right fit. Answering these questions will help narrow down the search to find an inclusive college that works best for their individual needs.
At IHECP, we want to ensure that students with learning, intellectual, and developmental disabilities have access to services that help them succeed in their higher education and post-college life goals. That’s why we’re always improving our services to better serve our students.
Through our blended services, students are able to foster their independence, develop their social skills, and expand their options for meaningful employment after college.
IHECP offers three major services to students with disabilities in Colorado: College Prep, Inclusive Support Services, and Academic Coaching. While each of these services are available on their own, we find that many students benefit from a continuum of services, meaning they can access multiple services at once. This, of course, depends on their goals and needs when they enroll on the Auraria Campus.
