There is much to celebrate at this year’s Disability Pride Parade. The Americans with Disabilities Act turns 25. The former (retired) senator of Iowa, Senator Thomas Harkin (D), who has been an advocate and a champion of disability rights throughout his service as senator is this year’s Grand Marshall.
The overall mission of the Disability Pride Parade is to change the way people think about and define “Disability”. Now is the time to promote the belief in society that Disability is a natural and beautiful part of human diversity in which people living with Disabilities can take pride.

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) mandates the services children with disabilities receive from the school system. IDEA will be reauthorized soon; it is critical that parents voice their concerns to legislators so students with disabilities can receive better services. In this webinar, participants will learn how an IDEA reauthorization works as well as what changes can be made in a reauthorization.
