Are you a family member of a young adult with a disability who's currently or recently enrolled in a postsecondary education program (e.g., certificate, apprenticeship, community college, college or university)? The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) wants your input, and requests your participation in an upcoming online dialogue, “Connecting Families: Supporting Postsecondary Success of Young Adults with Disabilities.” Through this "virtual town hall," you'll be able to share your ideas and insights on ways that postsecondary institutions and other providers can better assist you in supporting your student’s educational and employment success. The Connecting Families online dialogue will take place from January 26 - February 6, 2015. Please join this important conversation and spread the word to other potential participants.
