a library with the silhouettes of two faces

The winter months can be packed full of events, celebrations, and preparing for the new year so we wanted to make sure you didn’t miss some of our newest resources! Think College staff and some of our wonderful partners have developed new resources on topics like starting a new college program for students with ID, instructional frameworks, apprenticeships, and first-hand student experiences. Here is an overview of what’s hot off the press:

College and Career Learning Model 

College can be an opportunity for enormous growth for students. This resource outlines the College and Career Learning Model (CCLM) as a framework for college programs to support students in setting and working towards meaningful goals and gain experiences to achieve their goals.

Developing a College Program for Students with Intellectual Disability

Wondering how to start a college program for students with ID? This resource is a great place to start! Find answers to frequently asked questions about starting a program, learn about six areas of program development, and find guiding questions and topics to consider during program development. 

Developing Registered Apprenticeships within Inclusive Postsecondary Education

An important part of college is career exploration and securing paid work opportunities, like apprenticeships. This brief discusses the key components of apprenticeships, why they are a promising practice in IPSE, and how to develop them! See an example of a pilot apprenticeship in early childhood education from Next Steps at Vanderbilt University.

Think College Stories: Arthur Moreira

Arthur, a student in the College to Career program at College of Alameda, shares about his experience with Think College Policy Advocates (TPCA) where he met with Congressional office staff to discuss his experience as a college student and share information about IPSE. 

All of these publications and many more can be found in our resource library, where you can search by title, author, topic, and more. Stay informed about our new publications and other news by subscribing to one (or more) of our newsletters or following us on social media!
