DO-IT Scholars is a free, two week program hosted by the University of Washington (Seattle campus), where participants will learn about college selection, challenging careers, self-advocacy, and adaptive technology.
This is a great opportunity for high school sophomores or juniors in Washington State with an aptitude and interest in attending college, and have a disability such as, but not restricted to, mobility impairment, learning disability, sensory impairment, or health impairment.
Please bring your family, friends and co-workers to the 2018 LDA Conference (hosted by the LDA of America) in Atlanta, GA, for a time of learning and discovering how we can advocate and work together to create new opportunities for children and adults with learning disabilities. Learn More >
