Disability Pride Month

July is Disability Pride Month, a commemoration of the signing of the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990, and since then, to celebrate the identities, culture and contributions of people with disabilities in the United States and worldwide.  This year, the Center for Students with Disabilities would like to invite the UConn community to join us in marking this important time by reading The Secret Life of a Black Aspie, an exciting new memoir from writer Anand Prahlad, that explores the author’s autism and Black cultural identity.

CSD would also like to invite our colleagues to attend an open house on Wednesday, July 26, from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.  in our office, Room 204 of the Wilbur Cross building.  We’ll provide ice cream and hope to be able to offer some assistive technology demonstrations, answer questions about assessments and scheduling, and just have a chance to talk with you.  Please rsvp to csd@uconn.edu if you plan to attend. We look forward to seeing you!
