Swimming Upstream

Ever feel like you’re “swimming upstream” when trying to educate folks that disability is a construct of everyday life and that none of us are immune? As rehabilitation counselors and disability advocates, we certainly do. That’s why Transition2College has created the Swimming Upstream Blog, a public discussion on all things disability, with a particular interest in the intersection of disability and education. Join the conversation. We welcome the discourse!
