Monday, January 31, 2011

Staff from Kansas University’s Kansas University Center on Developmental Disabilities (KUCDD) and the Center for Research on Learning, in collaboration with other key partnering agencies, will implement a “Think College Kansas Initiative” by hosting an initial stakeholder meeting, conducting on-going Workgroup sessions, disseminating information to all relevant audiences across the state, facilitating the development of a state strategic action plan, and sponsoring a statewide promotional event.The result of this final collaborative event will be the development of a sustainable state action plan for implementing post-secondary experiences for students with intellectual and other developmental disabilities that maximizes resources and removes existing barriers to postsecondary education (PSE), and increases PSE opportunities leading to paid employment for Kansans with intellectual or other developmental disabilities.
