TITLE/DESCRIPTION:  Looking For Continuing Education and Social Options After High School For A Child With Special Needs?  Let's Learn About Lifelong Learning With Friends!

Adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), such as Down syndrome (DS) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have few opportunities to pursue higher education opportunities after graduating high school. Lifelong Learning with Friends (LLWF) is a post-secondary education program held on the University of Texas at Austin campus and allows adults with IDD to form age-appropriate friendships and learn sophisticated subjects typical to a neurotypical college program.  This program is open to students with higher support needs.

Join our webinar to hear from Kaelin Rubenzer, Executive Director for Lifelong Learning with Friends, and learn about this wonderful educational option! Before LLWF, Kaelin worked as a neuroscience researcher at the University of Texas at Austin and as a community attendant for over a dozen people with IDDs. Her most important influence for IDD advocacy is her personal experience with her older brother with ASD.
