Tech Goes To College: Opening Doors for Unique-Ability Students.
August 28, 2019
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The Buzz: “The transition from high school to college life is difficult enough for any number of students without considering a disability” (edsmart.org). Bryan Stromer describes Cerebral Palsy as a part of his identity: “If someone has already written me off because of the way I walk, it gives me the opportunity to prove them wrong and exceed their expectations, while also hopefully redefining how they think about disability” (forbes.com). The Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973…many college campuses began to rethink their facilities…powered accessible doors, wheelchair ramps and elevators in all multi floor buildings” (collegechoice.net). We’ll ask five experts about the future of higher education for students of all abilities: Patricia Parrish and Delaina Parrish, Fearless Independence; Ali Parrish, Physical Therapist; Gerry Altamirano, Disability Resource Center, Univ. of Florida; Jarrod Rowles, Numotion. Join us for Tech At College: Opening Doors for Unique-Ability Students.
