This presentation will focus on the utilization and implementation of academic supports offered through Wayfinders at the California State University, Fresno to support students with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. The primary support offered from our program is one-on-one tutorials between the Academic Student Coach and student. Academic Student Coaches provide differing levels of supports, which can vary throughout the semester. Tutorials are utilized to support students track, plan, and complete academic assignments. The levels of support that are planned during tutorials include in-class supports, study halls, and existing resources provided by Fresno State. OBJECTIVES: The overall goal of this presentation is to detail the training and implementation of Academic Student Coaches in a post-secondary inclusion system. We will discuss in detail the supports coaches make available to their student?s as well as the initial and on-going training they receive. An essential component of our coaching philosophy is not to duplicate services that are naturally available in a university setting. As a result we work closely with our university resource centers and this relationship will also be discussed. The primary audiences for this presentation are professionals and advocates working in the field as well as potential students who are interested in obtained post-secondary education. By the end of this presentation our goal is that the audience will be aware of what services are naturally available in a university setting. How these services can support students with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities and areas where additional supports may be necessary.
