Receiving a good Education is essential to effectively participate at some level in society. Although most formal education ends after high school or college, education should continue throughout the adult years for every individual. There are many offerings, whether you are looking for higher education or self-improvement, refresher courses or a degree program. Evaluate your needs and interests. Universities, colleges, technical colleges, television courses, and community education programs are often able to assist the disabled student toward their education goal. Education will not only help you in moving toward independence and becoming active in your community, but will also assist you in becoming more productive in the long range.
