You are part of a very important team of people who ensures that the supports are in place to help young adults with intellectual disabilities (ID) achieve their goals of independence, socialization, and meaningful work.
Young adults with ID should have an opportunity to access postsecondary education (PSE) opportunities along with their peers. Students with ID never stop learning and are capable of learning meaningful information that will provide lifelong enjoyment. By providing access to academic, community, and vocational exploration in a PSE setting; students with ID will make social connections, develop independent living skills, and are more likely secure a position in the world of competitive employment. You can help make that happen!
The D.R.E.A.M. Partnership relies on the support of people, like you, who have an understanding of the transition needs of young adults with ID and/or an understanding of PSE to provide support and guidance for our initiatives. We would welcome additional time and talent for one of our committees.
