Date: 11/8/2016

College Bound: A Guide for Students with Visual Impairments, 2nd Edition, by Ellen Trief. In the middle of the cover is an array of white stylized images (clockwise from top left corner): a day calendar with the page open to September 12, a calculator, a folded up white cane, a laptop with an electronic notetaker attached to it, a book, a magnifying glass, and a mortarboard (a square graduation cap).

The transition from high school to college is a significant turning point in life, but it can come with unique challenges if you are a student who is blind or visually impaired. The revised and updated College Bound: A Guide for Students with Visual Impairments, 2nd Edition by Ellen Trief, helps students prepare for their new life in college, develop useful skills, and negotiate for and coordinate appropriate services.

This large-print, full-color guide also includes strategies for:

  • organization
  • time management
  • research
  • studying
  • self-advocacy

You'll also find information about:

  • college application procedures
  • navigating the web
  • assistive technology

College Bound provides a road map for a successful journey through college life.
