We Need Your Help

To All Students:

I write you from the Connect-Ability summer workshop I’m attending at the New York State United Teachers (NYSUT) Headquarters in Latham, NY. 

My reason for writing is to convince you to contribute to Connect-Ability. We are working hard to make inclusion of students with disabilities in every aspect of school and community life a reality. 

We would like to hear from you. 

Connect-Ability is a coalition of New York state students who come together to foster disabilities awareness in our school and communities. Whether the topic is individualized education plans, assistive technology, personal experience or the experience of a friend or relative, there’s always good information and stories to share. 

So come be a part of this service to the community. Learn something yourself and practice you writing skills. 

You can email us at or call us at 800-342-9810, x6522 and talk with Catharine McHugh or Terry McSweeney, our advisors.

Think about it. I am eager to hear from you.

With sincerity,
