The Postsecondary Education for All Collaborative (PEAC) is an innovative collaboration between the LSU HSC Human Development Center and Delgado Community College. PEAC is one of 27 model demonstration Transition Programs for Students with Intellectual Disabilities (TPSID) grants funded by the U.S. Department of Education. \ \ PEAC provides services to individuals with intellectual disabilities (IWID), ages 18-21, who express an interest in attending a postsecondary institution and are currently enrolled in a participating school district. Recommendation for participation in PEAC is decided by each student’s IEP team. Individuals involved in the PEAC program maintain a dual enrollment at Delgado Community College and their local school district.
