Who Is Thinking College?: Six students with intellectual disability share their experience on how college was not offered as an option to them when they were younger, due to low expectations, and then reveal how they are shattering those low expectations by attending college. These short videos were used in a Public Service Announcement (PSA) Campaign in the New England area, to raise awareness of college as an option for students with intellectual disability.
