Perspectives on Disability Services from Students with Psychosocial Disabilities

Author: kimwpelmore@gmail.com

I’ve moderated student panels for the past two AHEAD annual conferences. Each year a learn a lot about how to make the next presentation better. For the 2019 conference, I plan to focus on students with psychosocial disabilities and will begin recruiting students if the proposal is accepted. This kind of focus will help us get more into some of the specific questions I know many DR professionals would like to discuss with students while still being able to discuss some of the issues beyond accommodations that students want DR professionals to know. I have taught high school and college classes and presented at over a dozen national conferences. While writing is my preferred method of communication, I get better and better at moderating sessions.
