Please join us for the 3rd Annual Students Helping Students Special Education College Night, scheduled for Wednesday, January 8th from 7:30-9:30PM in the Whitman Forum.

What is it?

Students Helping Students is an evening forum devoted to increasing awareness of the many choices students have for their continued development after high school graduation. Walt Whitman guidance counselors, university educational support personnel and WW alumni, who have received services in high school, return to share their college, employment or life experiences with currently classified students.


Who Should Attend?

High School students who are receiving Special Education Support or Test Accommodations, and their parents should plan to attend.


Who Will Present?

Mr. Mark Chapman, WW Guidance Counselor, will share information about negotiating the college process.


Mr. Mitch Nagler, Director, Bridges to Adelphi Program and Assistant Director of the Student Counseling Center at Adelphi University, will discuss supports available at the college level, and specifically, the Bridges program, aimed at supporting college students on the Autism Spectrum.


A panel of WW alumni will share their educational and life experiences after high school graduation.


Why Come?

It's never too early, or too late, to learn about options after high school.

College? Which ones? Two year or four year? How do I access support on campus? Work?


Get advice from your peers who have asked these same questions!
