TIPS for Post-Secondary

Grades 11 & 12

The TIPS (Transition Information, Preparation and Support) for Post-Secondary program is a small-group college and university transition support program for students in Grade 11 and 12 with a diagnosed, identified, or suspected learning disability.  This program aims to prepare students for the transition to post-secondary by equipping them with the necessary skills to navigate their new environment and advocate for their needs, thus fostering strong socio-emotional skills to set them up for success.

In TIPS for Post-Secondary, participants work on developing self-advocacy and coping strategies, and learn about the various resources available at college and university to prepare for a positive transition to post-secondary education. Sessions are taught using a combination of discussion, instruction, guest speakers and engaging activities.
