The Postsecondary Disability Training Institute (PTI) is sponsored by the Center on Postsecondary Education and Disability at the University of Connecticut. Now in its 28th year, PTI is held in conveniently located cities in the northeast each June and draws nearly 300 participants per year from across the United States and Canada.
The objective of this Training Institute is to assist concerned professionals to meet the unique needs of college students with disabilities. Students with disabilities as well as peer mentors are encouraged to attend and to submit poster session proposals. Participants can select from a variety of Strands, Single Sessions, Poster Sessions, and a Pre-Session taught by experts in the field that provide participants with in-depth information and adequate time for questions and follow-up activities throughout the week.
