Are Your Student's
Note Taking Skills College Ready?
Assistive Technology is a Game Changer For College Students
High school academics and college courses demand different skills in order to succeed. Successful college students are able to hit he ground running on Day 1 of the semester with solid note taking, critical thinking and study skills already in place. College is not the time to build academic skills - this is the time to demonstrate the skills built in high school.
If your student has underdeveloped note taking or study skills, not to worry! There are a variety of note taking software and apps that can help. But college is not the place to start practicing with these tools - practice and training should happen BEFORE the college semester starts.
AT and College Disability Offices
Most college disability offices expect students to know the academic supports they need and rely on students' ability to self-advocate. However, many college students simply don't have experience or training with assistive technology, thus they cannot advocate for using and exploring assistive technology devices that may help them be successful. The majority of college and university disability support offices do NOT offer training on assistive technology software/devices. But don't worry - We can help!
All services require no long-term commitment and can be used whether your student is in high school or college.
Our AT coaches will determine the note taking AT 'best fit' for your student and help train them on how to use their AT tool effectively.
When I found my note taking app I felt like I could breath in my classes. I didn't feel behind and I actually had notes to study with for my exams. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have a note taking program to help me in college.
