Accessible Academics is excited to present our new online courses and webinar series, open to anyone to participate! These classes combine weekly face-to-face interactions with your instructor and classmates via Zoom, as well as assignments and resources to keep you engaged throughout the course. Class sizes are small, with up to 10 participants, so that you will receive enough individual attention from your instructor. Should you miss a remote live session, the webinar is recorded and you will have access to view it.
These courses are community classes and may be reimbursable if you are eligible through OPWDD. Speak to your Care Coordinator to find out.
