When Patricia started thinking about college, we were surprised to learn how different it is from high school. This Guidebook from Quinsigamond Community College in Worcester, Massachusetts was a huge help. (If the previous link doesn’t work, try here.)
The best part is this form called “Who am I in 5 Steps.” For the first time, it helped Patricia understand what was wrong, what kind of trouble it causes, what she is good and bad at, what she had tried in the past, and what worked. Instead of just being a victim, this thing searches for solutions — something we needed.
