Lecture by Vincent J. Varrassi
Teaneck, N.J. (February 14, 2008) — “Successful Transition to College For Students with Learning Disabilities: Whatever Happened to My IEP?” is the focus of a lecture by Vincent J. Varrassi, Metropolitan Campus director of Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Regional Center for College Student with Learning Disabilities, on Tuesday, March 11 at 7 p.m.
Students and parents are invited to attend the lecture in Wilson Auditorium, Dickinson Hall on FDU’s Metropolitan Campus, 140 University Plaza Drive, Hackensack, N.J. There is a fee of $15 for adults, and $10 for students.
Varrassi will address the preparation and transitional issues for secondary students with learning disabilities and the need for these students to understand their disability and become self-advocates. He will describe the structured plan, including intensive advisement, academic support and counseling services, tailored to the individual needs of these students offered by the Center.
This lecture is the first of three being offered by the Regional Center. On April 15, author and leadership issues lecturer Robert Brooks will discuss “Building Resiliency in College-bound Students with Learning Disabilities,” and on May 6, Scott Marfilius, a nationally known lecturer of assistive technology, and faculty member at California State University, will discuss “Assistive Technology for the Success of College-bound Students with Learning Disabilities.”
