Importance of Post-Secondary College Transitional Programs for Students With Intellectual Disabilities
Tuesday, December 17, 2:00 p.m. ET
They say education is the key to success. Post-secondary education is a critical pathway to gain the skills, training, and knowledge necessary to enter desired professions. People with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) have long been denied this pathway, but this has changed over the past two decades.
Today, there are 280 college programs for students with I/DD, and more are being developed all the time. These programs offer a pathway to meaningful work and independent living by providing people with I/DD with a post-secondary credential and with the confidence to become self-sufficient adults.
In this webinar, you will learn about the college programs currently available across the country, how they are developed and funded, and how you can learn more about the options.
