The National Disability Rights, Education, Activism, and Mentoring (DREAM) group through the website, Medium, is hosting a new online series to highlight the perspectives and experiences of disabled college students.

DREAM has started a series called "College while Disabled" sharing the experiences of college students with disabilities through essays, videos, photography, and other media.

Taubman College | Stalled! Symposium

Taubman College partners with the U-M Initiative on Disability Studies (UMInDS), the U-M Spectrum Center, and the U-M Women’s Studies department on a symposium that examines the impact of  disability, gender-fluidity, and intersectionality on architecture and design.

This symposium provides a critical platform to collect key thought leaders to expand the discourse on the myriad implications of this topic, and invites broad participation from the University of Michigan network of activists, facility personnel, students, academic staff, administrators, and faculty.

World Premiere at The Michigan Theater on MLK Jr. Day 2018

Me, The “Other” World Premiere on January 15th, 2018 at 7:00 PM at The Michigan Theater in downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan. 

Me, the “Other” is more than a film. It is the centerpiece of a platform for creating conversations about “otherness” and about what connects us and divides us through the documentary, as well as social media, the website, short films and conversations in local communities. We hope to see you there!

Do You Stutter? The Speech Neurophysiology Lab at UM is Recruiting for Research Study

The Speech Neurophysiology lab conducts research on the neural bases of developmental stuttering, a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by frequent occurrences of sound-syllable repetitions, prolongations, and blocks that interrupt the flow and rhythm of speech production. Stuttering affects approximately 1% of the population, and 5% of preschool age children. The cause of stuttering is unknown, although accumulating evidence points to a neurodevelopmental etiology. Treatment options for stuttering remain limited.
