Students in the International Perspectives on Disability faculty-led study abroad program traveled to the Charlestown location of Toward Independent Living and Learning (TILL), a non-profit organization providing residential, clinical, and recreational opportunities for people with disabilities. The students were welcomed in the after school program facilities and given a tour of newly constructed group homes for adults with disabilities. The UMass students will be traveling with 15 participants from TILL to Scotland this August to attend the International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IASSIDD) conference.
