Adults with Disabilities

Adults with Disabilities programs are designed to serve adults with physical, developmental or cognitive disabilities by encouraging inclusion in the community and providing educational, social and recreational opportunities for participants. Programming can include development of classes and activities specifically for adults with disabilities as well as providing reasonable accommodations for adults with disabilities to participate in any Community Education activity.

Professional Network

MCEA established the Community Education Network on Disabilities (CEND) which is made up of community educators and adults with disabilities advocates from throughout Minnesota. CEND meets quarterly to network, participate in staff development opportunities, share program ideas, problem-solve and develop legislative action plans. Members work together to strengthen programs, connect adults with disabilities to their community and provide accommodations that will ensure successful learning experiences for all participants.

Here is a listing of CEND member groups and Community Ed. programs for adults with disabilities in MN.
