People at the Beach Center on Disability

Beach Center Investigators represent a wide variety of interests about people with disabilities in the community. They may focus on people of different ages -- from children to adults; varying disabilities rather than focusing on the negative aspects of disability; and a variety of topics such as employment, education, social aspects including positive behavior support, and families of individuals with a disability.
