GED INITIATIVE

During the 25th anniversary year of the ADA, we have created a new initiative to help solve one of the chief barriers to employment for people with disabilities, the lack of a high school diploma. For individuals with spinal cord injuries (SCI), the challenges of finding an accessible general educational development (GED) program compounds this problem, creating a particular set of barriers that often result in underemployment. The Vocational Rehabilitation Program at RIC seeks to address these issues by offering accessible GED classes at our downtown location.
