Parents of deaf and hard of hearing African-American, Latino American and Native American students who are entering 7th, 8th or 9th grade can get tips for preparing their students for college during live online parent workshops being held during RIT's Steps to Success Program on Saturday, August 7, 2010.
Parents can learn about financial aid and admissions from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.. From 1 to 3 p.m. deaf professionals will share their experiences attending college, graduating and going out into their chosen fields.
There is no charge or registration to watch the online live presentaations, at www.rit.edu/ntid/stsvideostream. Visit the site in advance to be sure your computer can access the live video.
Although the live, online parent workshops are focused for parents of African-American, Latin American and Native American students, the inforamtion presented would benefit any parent of a deaf or hard of hearing college bound child.
