Check out our monthly newsletter to keep up with all things FOCUS! If you know of any cool events happening, or have a story to share- please email and let us know!
We love hearing stories of support and success from programs that are offering college opportunities for young adults with Intellectual Disability. Here are just a few of the awesome things happening throughout the community:
- It looks like the National Champion Coach Dabo Swinney knows the importance of post-secondary education for young adults with developmental disability! Very cool article about his support for the Clemson LIFE program!
- This is from our RIVAL/partner at University of Nevada, Reno. The Pathway to Independence program graduated their first student! Way to go! When it comes to more post-secondary options, we can put the rivalry aside. Congratulations to Natasha and the P2I program!
