Back by popular demand, the "ADA Live!" Show: Post-Secondary Education and Students with Disabilities is being rebroadcast by the Southeast ADA.

This episode discusses what students with disabilities and their families need to know about access to higher education and the kinds of supports and services that are available to them when they enter college or university, and also recommended resources to get you started in learning more about higher education and students with disabilities.

Envision an inclusive global society in which youth with disabilities have the access, support, and confidence to achieve their full potential.
As adults, we need to empower youth with disabilities to reach their full potential by providing transformative mentoring programs, youth development opportunities, and inclusion. Motivate youth to reach their personal, educational, and career goals, and guide organizations in becoming more inclusive.
Youth with disabilities who are educated, mentored, and empowered have a profoundly positive impact on their communities and the world. My two co-hosts this morning are here to share what life was like growing up as a child with a disability who used a wheelchair for their mobility.
Angel Arredondo is the author of a children’s book series called, “I Love My Red Wagon”. A story about a typical childhood day of hers in a red wagon at school before she was able to acquire a wheelchair.
Kristen Hart, creator of the YouTube channel, “Living Able”. A series of videos teaching individuals who use wheelchairs how to live independently.

Why Are Students with Disabilities Failing Standardized Tests?
Most teachers, from elementary to college levels, are able to identify when students have difficulty learning, within the first weeks of a semester. However, employers and co-workers are not able or qualified to identify employees with Learning Disabilities unless the person is willing to ask for an accommodation.

Elizabeth shares what is in it for all individuals when they open up to looking at the abilities over the disabilities. It will be the first of a series as she introduces her Platform for the Todays American Woman, and continues over the next month to help us understand what is really in it for everyone when we open our minds, hearts, and attitudes to looking at individuals from the ability stand point rather than the disabiity stand point.
Dream Catchers - Possibilities not Disabilities - Les Paul Morgan
I am an American Citizen doing all I can to find the American Dream who just also happens to have a disability. Disability is not a bad word it’s the way people have used the word to create so many negative stereotypes that I cannot stand! The fact is I am one single person living with a disability on a journey of discovery to help myself and hopefully many, many others will discover their possibilities and turn them into a lifelong Dream Come True!
Because I work for a Center for Independent Living which is a Civil Rights for people with disabilities organization while I am at work I am working in the very heart of the disability rights movement as a peer supporter and advocate for person with disabilities as a person with a disability. I feel this gives me a great eyes view of ways to help people find ways to overcome the many problems of living with a Brain Injury or any other type of disability so I hope we together can concur the illusion that we can’t do something great because I know we can!!!
