Kevin Reinhardt reports on his 1-year sabbatical in which he researched postsecondary programs available for young adults on the autism spectrum and with LD.
Kevin is registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario, with extensive experience in assessment, teaching, and supportive counseling of students and families who experience disabilities. Of his almost 40 years of experience and training in the field, he has spent the last 24 in post-secondary services. He has written and presented nationally and internationally to students, parents, educators, rehabilitation specialists, business, and government, on issues related to education and disability.
He has been on the faculty of Georgian, Seneca and Cambrian Colleges where he has worked in teaching, counseling, psycho-educational/psycho-vocational assessment, research, and mentoring. Most recently, at Seneca College, he has had the opportunity to take a sabbatical year where the subject was an investigation into best practices in post-secondary education for students who experience ASD in Canada and the USA.
CIP’s Thinking Positive About the Future panel events include presentations by several guest speakers who work with the ASD and LD community; offering advice on the key stages of transition to adulthood including: letting go, adjusting to college, finding success in the workplace, and achieving independence.
