Transition services for students with disabilities in university’s have been significantly underrepresented in the field of school psychology. More research is needed that focuses on transitioning to the university setting to connect students with learning and neurodevelopmental disabilities to available campus recourses. In response, our team is working to develop a mentorship experience that provides services to university students with disabilities. The purpose of this study is to investigate ways in which graduate student mentors can support undergraduate mentees with learning and neurodevelopmental disabilities.
