How to Build an Access Transition Fair at Your Institution

Author: earitter

In 2014 I moved to Beaumont, Texas where I took over as Director of the Disability Resource Center at Lamar University. As Director of the Disability Resource Center I have presented numerous occasions at new student orientations, new faculty orientations, TACRAO conference with our universities registrar on how to make commencement more accessible, low vision workshop for biology faculty, athletic department, recruitment events, and other events that deal working with new students transitioning. My education and wealth of professional experience have provided insight on how to best help young people with disabilities gain the skills necessary to make the leap from a K-12 setting to college or a vocational setting. My entire career and experience has been diverse and carefully geared toward helping young people with disabilities find the tools needed to be successful.
