For this episode, I speak with Meg Grigal and Cate Weir from Think College about why it is important for individuals with intellectual disabilities to have the option to go to college. We discuss what inclusive post-secondary education programs for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities really look like. And how the data shows that these programs are successful, with learners getting jobs after graduation at three times the rate of the national average. 

Thanks for listening, and if you haven’t already, please give us a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ review on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
