Irish Eyes Smile on UW-Stout

Irish Eyes Smile on UW-Stout
The United States is a world leader in accommodating individuals with disabilities. Because UW-Stout has a well-known vocational rehabilitation program, other countries take notice.

The university has been training disability service providers in Ireland since 2001. Workshops are held at Dunhill Multi-Education Centre, a modern training facility in southeast Ireland.

Through UW-Stout’s Outreach Services, Kathleen Deery oversees the disability training programs onsite in Ireland. “In a global society, we have to reach out to each other,” she says.

UW-Stout students also will benefit from the disability collaboration. Next summer Deery will guide students on a two-week study tour of disability programs across Ireland. “Now this is a modern-day education,” says Deery.
