Karly started working with UC UCEDD during her spring quarter at the University of Cincinnati’s Transition and Access Program (T.A.P.), a college option for people with intellectual disabilities who want the full college experience. Students live in their own dorm, attend classes, and train in professional internships.
In collaboration with the Nisonger Center at The Ohio State University as the lead agency, UC UCEDD received a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Preventionâ€™s National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (CDC-NCBDDD) for â€œimproving the health of people with disabilities through state-based public health programs.â€
UC UCEDD was proud to serve as a promotional partner for the Cincinnati ReelAbilities event. ReelAbilities is the largest national film festival focused on sharing the stories, lives, and art of people with disabilities.Â The Cincinnati ReelAbilities Festival (March 9th-16th 2013) featured over 17 local screenings.Â Proceeds benefited local nonprofit organizations committed to serving people with disabilities.
