Students with intellectual disability want to go to college — and they can! But they can’t get there alone. This free webinar from the Council for Exceptional Children will look at the current picture of inclusive higher education in the U.S., hear from college students with intellectual disability from around the country, and include a panel of experienced educators.

You’ll learn about college options for students with intellectual disability (ID) and hear about new resources from Think Higher. Think College. Think College provides resources, technical assistance and training related to college options for students with intellectual disability, and manages the only national listing of college programs for students with intellectual disability in the U.S.

Attendees will also hear from a panel comprised of two K-12 educators and a program director from an inclusive postsecondary education program about what options exist for students with ID, how to guide students to pursue college, and how to assemble a team to ensure a smooth transition from high school to college.

The webinar’s moderator is Dan Habib, the Inclusive Communities Project Director at the Westchester Institute for Human Development and the founder of LikeRightNow Films.
