The journey from high school to a post-secondary institution can be stressful for any student, but especially for students with disabilities. To address this important transition in the education of students with disabilities, Northampton Community College developed the ACT Now curriculum and training program.


  • delivers training to secondary educators, who hold much influence over the educational preparation of students.
  • prepares students for their transition to postsecondary education through a process of self discovery, knowledge and self advocacy.
  • prepares the parents of these students with needed information and understanding to support their sons and daughters as they move into adulthood.

Project Support
ACT Now was developed by Northampton Community College in collaboration with the Bethlehem Area School District and the Colonial Intermediate Unit 20. The project was funded in part by grant # P116B040404 from the United States Department of Education's Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE).
