This dialogue hosted by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) and its National Collaborative on Workforce & Disability for Youth (NCWD) asked family members and guardians of student with a disability currently or recently enrolled in a postsecondary program what post-secondary institutions and other providers could do to better assist students' educational and employment success. The dialogue was a valuable opportunity to hear experiences and pinpoint solutions to help students with disabilities complete degree or certificate programs at the same rate as their peers without disabilities.
