Preparing High School Students With Chronic Illnesses for College Transition: Lessons Learned From College Counselors
Professional School Counseling
Interest is growing regarding high school preparation for students transitioning to college with chronic illnesses such as asthma, cancer, and diabetes. This qualitative study examined 15 college counselors’ perceptions of working to address high school transition needs with incoming students diagnosed with chronic illnesses. Four themes emerged from the findings: counseling services, social aspects, medical considerations, and educational needs. We discuss implications for high school counselors’ practice and future research.
