On May 3rd, Skyline College’s Disability Resource Center (DRC) joined the Education Revolution (EdRev) at AT&T Park in San Francisco. EdRev is a fun and informational event for parents and students with learning differences and ADD/ADHD. In addition to enjoying activities on the baseball field, participants heard from national speakers on LD and ADD/ADHD, as well as connected with many exhibitors and vendors. DRC was the only Bay Area public institution of higher education to exhibit at the event and had a great response from attendees. DRC met with parents and prospective students and connected with local high schools special ed programs and community organizations. EdRev participants were able to sign up for a DRC open house and assistive technology demo to take place on May 13th at the DRC in 5-132. The DRC team ended the wonderful event by heading to the baseball field and running the bases!
DRC faculty Melissa Matthews, Carol Newkirk, and Judy Lariviere tabled at EdRev and received a huge response from conference goers.
