People with developmental disabilities are going to college!

Until recently, people with developmental disabilities did not have many education options after they left high school. But now across the country, parents, teachers, disability advocates and students themselves have begun to find ways to make college a real option.

People with developmental disabilities want to go to college for the same reasons all young people want to go to college. A college experience is beneficial for anyone who wants to learn, meet people, and prepare for a job and make money. Going to college makes a real difference in the eyes of future employers as well as other people in the community.
