Youth in Partnership with Parents for Empowerment dates announced!
This is an opportunity for youth with disabilities and their parents to learn about the transition process in a unique way. YiPPE helps students in decision making, involvement, self-advocacy, self-determination, work/college, and making friends. Meetings will be held in Eau Claire, Green Bay and Wisconsin Dells this year. Please visit: http://wspei.org/families/yippe.php for more information or contact Sara Zwiefelhofer at (715) 450-6609.
In 2011, 11% of all students enrolled in higher education reported having a disability, and that figure is growing, indicating that more students with disabilities are enrolling in higher education. While this is cause for celebration, these students face additional financial challenges in achieving their educational goals. To address these needs, we have created a guide to financial aid for students with disabilities.
Our guide includes valuable resources for students with disabilities, such as:
A curated list of more than 85 disability-specific scholarships
Strategies for utilizing state and local financial aid resources
An overview of loan forgiveness and reduction options
Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) Practice Tests
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test is a required test administered to anyone interested in enlisting in any of the US Armed Service branches. Minimum scores must be met in order to be able to enlist as well as to qualify for certain jobs within the service. This site provides free practice tests for all categories of the ASVAB so those interested in joining the military can get a sense of the questions they will expect to see on the ASVAB. Please go to http://asvabpracticetestonline.com to access the website.
