Supportive. Sensible.

ACT, Inc. provides effective postsecondary education support.

When a student with a disability that affects learning moves on from high school to postsecondary education, a transitional gap can make success difficult. This gap can include a lack of advocacy for the student in areas of discovering, initiating and following through learning support available from the college or university. ACT, Inc.’s skilled and experienced staff facilitate this transition into college or university by acting as a liaison between the student and the institution, and advocating for the student. In order to maximize a student’s full independence, we provide this support on a one-to-one basis, and maintain a low profile in the college or university community.
