Does my child’s/(my) IEP transfer to college, or what sorts of resources are available?

Please contact APAC or the Student Success Center regarding questions about specific accommodations.
How involved can I, as a parent, expect to be if my child is in APAC?
APAC promotes the development of self-advocacy and independence skills in its students. That being said, sometimes we all need help/advise from our parents. APAC staff also understand that parents will always worry about their babies. Feel free to contact APAC staff with any questions or concerns, but don’t be offended if APAC insists on the student (with assistance from APAC staff) navigating his/her resources to find the answers or resolve situations.
My child/(I) receive counseling/therapy related services through another agency, should he/she/(I) continue them while in APAC?
Absolutely. APAC offers a ton of support for its students, but it does not have an on-site counselor or therapist. Besides, if possible, it would be better to stick with someone who already knows a lot about the student. If desired, APAC can work with the counselor/therapist on addressing the individual needs of the student.
