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.

BONUS: Cheryl Green & Thomas Reid | Pod Access Survey

By MCIE / 2022-07-20
Posted in

Hi, Y’all!

My friends, Cheryl and Thomas (who are superb podcasters BTW), are taking over the Think Inclusive feed for a few minutes today to tell you about a special survey project they are doing.

With support from the Disability Visibility Project, Cheryl Green and Thomas Reid are gathering information about disabled podcasters and podcasts focused on disability and accessibility (or “disability podcasts” for short). 

They will use this information to develop an online listing of podcasts and resource for disabled podcasters to find each other and find audiences.

Awesome right?

Here is the link if you are interested in taking the survey.

Here is a transcript of the promo from Cheryl and Thomas.

Thanks for listening, and we will catch you next week in the feed with another episode of Think Inclusive.
