The annual international AHEAD conference brings together professionals in the fields of higher education and disability for a week of information-sharing, networking and theoretical and practical training.
The 2013 AHEAD Conference theme Challenging and Changing Disability Perspectives is designed to challenge you to think outside the box!
Explore how the disability climate is changing and how these changes are influencing practices and outcomes in the higher education disability environment. The work we do is constantly changing. The AHEAD conference is your opportunity to seize the moment, learn what is new, and find ways to improve.
