Feedback form is now closed.
Summary:
Inclusive college for students with intellectual disabilities has been expanding for decades. Georgia currently has nine programs, and the Georgia Inclusive Postsecondary Education Consortium is working with several other colleges and universities to build the capacity for welcoming students onto their campuses and into their classrooms. We will address background and strategies for transitioning students into this postsecondary option. Clearly, careful preparation of these youth and their families is necessary, much as it is for their typical peers.

Learning Objectives:
1. Participants will learn about the nine inclusive postsecondary education programs in Georgia.
2. Participants will learn resources for preparing effective transition plans that can lead to inclusive postsecondary education.
3. Participants will learn about employment outcomes for students who attend inclusive postsecondary education programs.
