The Institute's monthly staff newsletter featuring news of recent activities, accomplishments, and resources. This month's feature stories are about an Impact article that connected the co-author to a young Ukrainian refugee who was struggling to adjust to a local kindergarten, the 2022 Minnesota Gathering on October 25-26, how students gain a deeper understanding of disability through ICI's Disability Policy and Services Certificate, and a report of a national survey by ICI and the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals that shows that anxiety and depression are surging among direct support workers. This month's alumni update is about Julie Anderson (MNLEND 2016-17) who is innovating state programs in Massachusetts to better serve families and children with disabilities.
