Passing this along to any folks here who have a disability (blind or visual impairment, physical or mobility, learning, mental health-related, other non-apparent disability) or who are Deaf or hard of hearing AND interested in Fulbright, Peace Corps or other volunteer service, study abroad, overseas internships, language programs, or other international exchange programs. I know the organization sponsoring it, the National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange. They post stories written by/about people with disabilities who have returned from these sorts of programs (http://www.miusa.org/ncde/stories).

People in the U.S. disability and Deaf communities are invited for this half-day seminar and luncheon in Denver to discuss the ‘Who, What, Where and Why’ of international exchange, including overseas cultural, educational, professional and volunteer programs, for U.S. students, teachers, professionals and others with disabilities. Get tips for accommodation strategies, best practices, and other resources from a panel of international exchange alum who have disabilities.

  • When: Tuesday, July 13th, 1:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
  • Where: Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel   
  • Registration Deadline: June 21, 2010

This event is open only to U.S. citizens and residents of the U.S.

People with disabilities of all ages and disability types in the United States. Youth with disabilities are encouraged to attend! Scholarships and reduced rates available. Visit http://www.miusa.org/ncde/denver to learn more about the seminar and to register.

hi. I'm Ben and I live on Capitol Hill and go to UCD. I'm 24 and an awesome person if you get to know me. there are some pictures of me on my profile but most of the rest of that crap is out of date.

I'm sick of looking for friends among hordes of "normals", so I thought I'd see if there are any abnormal bipolarish folks concentrated around here that I'm missing.

so say "hey" if you feel compelled to do so!

i dont know about the rest of you. i can only speak for myself... but im really enjoying being depressed. im not agitated, i feel GENUINE. i feel like myself. hypomania is a facade. people around me are worried and think im depressed, but i honestly feel great.

im sure people will comment and say, “how can you say that? depression ruined my life!” yeah ok, me too, but i feel good right now.

I thought it might be a good idea to compile a database of scholarships for the disabled, focusing on college students but not exclusively so. If you would like to be apart of this, either to supply information or to receive the final file, look up this post title on creactiv_voice for further instructions.

Vocational Rehabilitation is the service intended to help you with just that. Here is where you can find your local office

If you have a problem with Vocational Rehabilitation Services, you can contact CAP or Client Assistance Program. Find out about what CAP is here . Im working on a state-by-state spreadsheet of CAP agencies, since those sites dont seem to provide such. If anyone can find one that does, please contact me.

Tell us about your experience with Vocational Rehabilitation or CAP at creactiv_voice

OR Creactivists Voice on Yahoo!

OR Creactivists Voice on MSN
