Two College Talks

15 March 2010: More on this topic is in the blog entry “Transitions for Young Adults with Neurocognitive Deficits

I gave two college talks last week – driving 372 miles south on Friday (San Jose – San Luis Obispo – San Jose), then 103 miles north on Saturday (San Jose – Lafayette – San Jose).

Friday’s talk was called “Mentoring in Engineering & Computer Science & Technology Jobs”, given at the sold-out  National Association of Engineering Student Councils (NAESC) conference at CalPoly in San Luis Obispo (SLO). For more, see my  1 April 2009 blog entry.

Saturday’s talk in Lafayette was called “What Happens After College? – Kids with Neurocognitive Disability Working in Engineering and Computing”, at the Orion Academy “3rd Annual Seminar on Post-Secondary Transition Planning for Young Adults with Aspergers, NLD and other Neurocognitive Deficits”. For more, see my 30 March 2009 blog entry.

From the comments and emails, I think both talks went well.  Some photos follow. You can also read Wendy Dow’s “University Recruiting Topics Studentzone” blog entry (13 April 2009) about the CalPoly talk [no longer available online].
