1. Which level of support would be best suited for Mohamed? Mohamed is 19 and has Down syndrome. He received most of his special education services in high school in a separate classroom. He went to choir and PE with his peers without disabilities. He does not read or write at the high school level. He had an IEP in high school which addressed his academics, communication, social, and some fine motor development skills. Mohamed wants to live independently and hopes to attend college and learn about becoming a journalist. His school district has a transition program which he hasn’t yet decided if he’ll participate in, although he does qualify for that route. He has never taken the SAT or ACT and has always completed alternative assessments in place of state standardized tests. He is excited for college but because he hasn’t been included in typical classes and hasn’t been independently getting to and from school or going to social activities, he is nervous and could benefit from supports in these areas, as well as academics. *

2. Which level of support would be best suited for Chris? Chris is 17 and has autism. He is currently a junior in high school, thinking about going to college to become a journalist. He had an IEP for most of school, but has switched to a 504 plan the past couple of years. Chris follows the standard high school curriculum and has taken a couple advanced classes in writing. Chris takes most of his tests in the school testing center so that he may have access to extra time and a quiet testing location. Chris meets with the school counselor and a group of other students once a week to work on developing his social skills. Chris has expressed a goal to be able to meet new people at an upcoming conference he is attending. Having looked at a few schools, he thinks he meets the criteria for some of the state colleges and universities in his area. *

3. Which level of support would be best suited for Tanisha? Tanisha is 18 and has a visual impairment. In high school, she was served by a 504 plan which allowed her tests and class materials to either be converted to Braille or be read aloud to her. She also was allowed to leave class a few minutes early to get a headstart in the crowded hallways. She has a decent GPA and has always taken challenging classes with her peers without disabilities. She took all the state standardized tests as well as the SATs. She wants to attend college and learn about becoming a journalist as well. She is excited to attend college, but is nervous about navigating a new area and wants to make sure her materials are available in Braille or are recorded for her to listen to. *
