PISCATAWAY, NJ - Students at Nuview Academy Annex (NAA) learned a great deal about Middlesex County College and its support services for students with special needs, as a result of a visit from Admissions Counselor Desiree Brower.
In addition to sharing a wide range of information about the college, Ms. Brower facilitated a productive discussion with students regarding their future goals.
“The students were highly engaged and welcomed the opportunity to ask questions regarding their goals after high school,” said NAA’s Amanda Olexion, LSW Therapist.
Middlesex County College offers a variety of support services for students with disabilities including adaptive testing services, note taker support, sign language interpreters, adaptive technology, books on tape, and other accommodations based on a student’s needs.
