In a one-hour webinar, we will share research aimed to help academic institutions and equity-minded employers better understand the challenges that working adult students with learning disabilities and attention issues face when pursuing a degree, as well as high-level services and resources that academic institutions and innovative employers can deploy to better meet student needs and prepare them for success and upward career mobility.

This webinar will provide valuable insights for:

  • Innovative employers looking to recruit and support the upward mobility of employees with learning disabilities.
  • Anyone interested in strategies and real world examples from The University of Arizona's SALT Center, The National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD), and Centene Corporation.
