Postsecondary Education Supports and Accommodations
Emerging & Promising Practices
The Center on Education and Work, located at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is designing, delivering, and evaluating a distance-education program that prepares college staff to develop and implement summer college preparation programs for individuals with disabilities who have enrolled but not yet begun college. This project is funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS), and offers interested persons the opportunity to participate in a 16-week distance education professional development experience.
