The Association on Higher Education and Disability ("AHEAD") is the premiere professional association committed to full participation of persons with disabilities in postsecondary education.
It is a membership organization for individuals involved in the development of policy and in the provision of quality support services to serve the needs of persons with disabilities involved in all areas of higher education.
I have attended several AHEAD conferences over the years, and found them to be very helpful as I serve law students with disabilities. You ought to consider attending.
This year, the 28th annual conference will take place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, from August 2 through 6.
AHEAD also offers regional training. Last year, I attended a day-long regional program in Massachusetts about assisting students with ADHD, psychological difficulties, and psychiatric disorders. Take a look at what they have to offer. (djt)
