Special Events for Students With Disabilities

Special Events for Students With Disabilities

The programs in the Disability Support Programs and Services (DSPS Division sponsor speakers, events and activities for the college and community. Events in recent years have included:

  • A lecture by a nationally recognized speaker on learning and ADHD,
  • Literary reading by an acclaimed blind poet, author, and disability rights advocate,
  • Participation in national teleconferences,
  • Presentations by local community agencies that serve persons with disabilities. 

The programs also host awareness activities for the campus, such as "Deaf Town," a campus-wide activity focused on the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community and culture.

The Adapted PE program has hosted an annual holiday celebration, spring bar-b-ques and a summer ice cream social for a number of years. 

An annual Spring Celebration honors the DSS students who have earned certificates or degrees or who are transferring to the university.

Students representatives are also appointed as members of the DSPS Advisory Board. This group of community and campus leaders meets annually to advise the College and the DSPS division.
