Various people with posters and presentations in a collage

Center for Disabilities Studies’ scholars and staff, and University of Delaware students connected to the Center, regularly deliver presentations and present posters to audiences throughout Delaware, regionally, nationally and internationally. Their talks and displays give academicians, practitioners and the community opportunities to learn first-hand about original research from CDS, and CDS’s leadership on issues of importance to people with disabilities and their families.
