The latest from the blog...

This last year has been many things for us including isolation, fear, disability discrimination, information, ableism, challenges, lack of disability access, creativity, dissemination, outreach, growth, and successes. The pandemic has further revealed how important it is that disability is included in every equity conversation, including transition and higher education conversations about students with intellectual developmental disabilities accessing college.


As of March 9, 2021, the discriminatory, expanded Public Charge rule is permanently BLOCKED, and is no longer in effect anywhere in the United States. Now, immigrants can safely get public benefits that support their health, nutrition, and housing without fear of impact on their immigration status.

A partir del 9 de marzo del 2021, la regla discriminatoria y ampliada sobre la Carga Pública está permanentemente BLOQUEADA, y ya no está en vigor en ninguna parte de los Estados Unidos. Ahora, los inmigrantes pueden obtener de forma segura los beneficios públicos que apoyan su salud, nutrición y vivienda sin temor a que su estatus migratorio se vea afectado.

Will, one of the first students to complete the College and Community Studies program at PSU, and staff member at NWDSA/ABI reflects on his transition and college experience.
