State of the Art Conference on Postsecondary Education & Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities

This popular conference of 300+ participants provides opportunities for colleges of all sizes, universities, researchers, program staff, parents and self-advocates to learn about the current state of research and practice in the field, and to network with each other. Panels that include faculty and staff from postsecondary education initiatives, parents, self-advocates, and other experts, share effective practices during break-out sessions with opportunities for group discussion. The Student Leadership Conference is a parallel conference which brings more high school and college students into the conversation​. New this year is the College Fair, happening on Tuesday night, 11/12, where over 30 colleges will be prepared to greet students and families interested in college!
