This is by far the most fascinating resource I have come across on ACCESS-ed. I think it's great that there is a resource for young adults to further their education, advance in a career field of interest, and find the support and accommodations necessary to live independently. The website even had an awesome video on their home page that included verbal EqTDs of the scenes.

A great resource for students to become more of an independent individual despite any physical or cognitive functional disability. The website is cluttered, but it is easy to follow and understand.

"We cannot afford to let the issue of disabilities be simply an afterthought. We have a unique opportunity now, as industry pours billions of dollars into upgrading the communications infrastructure, to make sure that people with disabilities are not left behind. Now is the time. Accessibility of services and products for all Americans has got to be a design feature, not an add-on."
