Upcoming discussion: Adults with disabilities, awareness, and accommodations

Dear Postsecondary Completion and Health Literacy Colleagues:

I want to alert you to an upcoming discussion taking place in the Disabilities in Adult Education group.  If you do not belong to the group, simply go to the Groups tab above and select the Disabilities in Adult Education.  Remember to subscribe to Immediate, 12 Hour or 24 Hour Digest to follow the discussion via your email.  The discussion will be periodically summarized during the week in both the PS Completion and Health Literacy groups.
