For centuries, students with disabilities, particularly those who identify with underserved or marginalized populations have been faced with extraordinary challenges as they navigate the school system. Educators are presented with challenges in connecting with individuals of different backgrounds in addition to providing quality integrated special education services that lead to competitive, integrated employment outcomes. Providers of services for youth with disabilities are hungry for resources to support their colleagues in the education system to enable and empower them to raise the bar in providing equal services to youth of color with disabilities. During this webinar, participants will learn how to apply assessment tools and unique strategies that help in breaking barriers and identifying realistic solutions to supporting students of color with disabilities that are struggling to navigate the complexities of being an underserved or marginalized population in local education system.
