Publication date: 
March 15, 2018

What do teachers know about accommodations for students with disabilities? Are Americans with disabilities finding jobs? How do you tell policymakers about the needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities? Answers to those and other questions will be shared on March 27 when ICI presents eight research posters in three categories at the University of Minnesota's College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) Research Day. The posters and display tables will showcase a range of ICI research activities, and staff will be on hand to discuss their work. ICI posters and their authors include:
