Welcome to Riverside!
Congratulations, you made it to “Connecting the D.O.T.S.-Discovering Opportunities via
Teambuilding and Solidarity,” the 36th Annual CAPED Convention. CAPED is that one
opportunity to come together to feed your professional soul. The nourishment we gain
from spending an extended amount of time with friends and colleagues, who speak the same language,
fight the same battles, and share the same vision is a rejuvenating
experience. Last year, “Connecting the D.O.T.S.” was conceived on a napkin by some old
friends sitting around a table between programs. The result of
that serendipitous synthesis of great minds is a multi-regional
convention committee that has put together one of the finest programs
in years. The depth and breadth of our offerings is extraordinary. The
immensity of the talent and expertise that is being assembled to foster our work with students is
impressive. If you hunger for the latest in technological solutions, new programs, or emerging
populations then you have come to the right place. This is not the petite filet; this is the full cut, the
“loco moco” of convention programs.
This year we hail the return of former CAPED President and current Under Secretary of
Education, Dr. Martha Kanter and special guest Kareem Dale, Associate Director, White
House Office of Public Engagement & Special Assistant to the President for Disability
Policy. We will also be graced with the expertise of Jonathan Mooney, author of “The
Short Bus;” employment and disability policy expert, Susan Daniels; veterans with
disabilities program chair from UCR, Dr. Karen White; and resident CAPED legal
experts Ralph Black and Paul Grossman. The convention also features the latest and
greatest in technology and student services. The CAPED vendors and exhibitors are
here again and eagerly await the opportunity to help you find the perfect solutions to the
challenges you face every day.
The convention will also benefit from the tremendous partnership and convention co-sponsorship
of CHIIP (the California Health Incentives Improvement Act Project) and
many other vendors, sponsors and supporters. This year, Cambium is co-sponsoring
the President’s reception so we thank them and all of our supporters for their
participation and we encourage you to not only visit their booths, but to talk with the
representatives and load up your shopping carts.
If your hunger is fed by giving, the CAPED Silent Auction will be driven by fine art,
jewelry, and fine wines from the Temecula wine valley. All of your contributions support
CAPED scholarships and are tax deductible. Even if you don’t have a winning bid,
making a direct contribution is another way to support our students. Thank you for
joining us at “Connecting the D.O.T.S.,” I hope you have a great time and if you want to
make your own “loco moco” all you need is a hamburger patty with a fried egg on top,
served over rice. You can add beef gravy or try it as a chili burger with a strip of bacon
in Hawaiian sweet bread.
Keep the faith!
Mark

knowledge and wisdom with other members that are also working in a common field of
expertise.
The break out session on Monday October 17th at 12:00 – 1:30 is where one can grab a
quick lunch and join a CIG meeting! Join us as we CONNECT the DOTS…with other

Jonathan Mooney, “The Short Bus – A Journey Beyond Normal”
Image, Photograph of Jonathan Mooney

A young man once labeled “severely learning disabled” journeys across America
to
find others who have used humor, imagination, and resiliency to create satisfying
lives beyond “normal.”
When his teachers decided Jonathan Mooney needed special ed because he couldn’t
follow directions, sit still, or read well, he feared he’d lost his chance to be a regular
kid. Suddenly he was “not normal.” Suddenly he was a short-bus rider destined to
travel a harder road, a distinction that screamed out his “difference” to a hostile
world. Along with other kids facing similar challenges, he was denigrated daily. He
almost lost hope. Yet ultimately, Jon shocked the skeptics, graduating from Brown
University (with honors). But he could never shake the voice that insisted he would always be
“less than.”
So he hit the road. To free himself, he dreamed up an epic journey across the U.S. on a broken-
down short bus. This inspiring record
of his odyssey documents Mooney’s search to help himself by learning from others once
labeled abnormal who had learned to live
in beautifully original ways. He meets Ashley, a deaf and blind girl who curses out her teachers
in sign language; Kent, a performance
artist with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) who loves “yo mama” jokes and may
just be the new Andy Kaufman; Jeff,
an obsessive eccentric whom society would label autistic, keeps unadorned lists that describe
his world in unexpectedly moving
ways. These people confirm his belief that “normal” is a state that no one actually visits.
Everyone, Jon discovers, must embrace
even their most radical differences.

Support Programs to Assist Disabled Student Veterans Succeed in College
This session will provide an overview of the kinds of issues and challenges our student veterans are
facing today and highlight programs and services that have been successful in helping these
students overcome those challenges and complete their college degrees. Also highlight a
comprehensive scholarship and assistance program that is available at the University of California
Riverside to aid disabled veterans and their families.
According to the Department of Veteran Affairs, nearly 2.5 million Veterans are returning from
active duty and are eligible for higher educational benefits through the Post 9/11 GI Bill. Returning
veterans face many challenges upon returning to school, including psychological, cognitive and
physical disabilities. UCR is endeavoring to meet the needs of this rapidly growing population by
providing access to resources and services through Veteran Services and Services for Students with
Disabilities.
Learning Outcomes:
--Gain a basic understanding about military culture and language, the issues facing veterans transitioning to civilian
life, and why the
number of veteran students is growing.
--Understand the specific disabilities of veterans, including the signature wounds from the recent military conflicts,
treatment
options and the functional limitations in the educational environment as a result.
--Learn how UCR’s Veterans Services and Services for Students with Disabilities work together to foster success in
many aspects of
veteran students’ educational experience as well as some of the barriers that inhibit veterans from utilizing
disability services in
higher education.
--Learn about Operation Education, a unique and comprehensive scholarship program for disabled veterans and
how it can be
replicated on your campus.

Restoring Funding for Disabled Student Programs (Grand Ballroom B)
Presenters:
Ralph Black
Catherine Campisi
Scott Hamilton
Angry and Frustrated? Get Involved in Restoring Funding for Disabled Student Programs!
The purpose of this session is to engage CAPED members in activities to assist in advocacy efforts related to
funding of Disabled
Student Services (DSS) at California colleges and universities. The session will focus on issues related to seeking
restoration of
funding for DSPS programs in the Community Colleges and funding reductions and threats to other college
university DSS Programs.
In addition, it will identify strategies for college staff, students, and agency partners to become involved in seeking
additional funds
for services to students with disabilities.
The session is relevant to the concerns of the professionals, students, families, and related agency staff given the
drastic reduction of
over 40% made to DSPS services in the Community Colleges in 2009-10 and the overall fiscal condition of the state
and nation which
poses threats to services at other colleges and universities.
The session will include a panel presentation on funding issues and the context of seeking restoration in the
current economic
climate. It will also include audience involvement in brainstorming ideas for informing Legislators and other public
policy makers
about the need for increased funding. Participants will have the opportunity to identify actions they are willing to
take to assist in
these efforts.

Technology: Mobile Media Devices (Imperial Room)
Presenter:
Jayme Johnson
Modern media exists in a wide variety of places and formats. Media is the means by which communication
happens between
individuals, the means by which entertainment is delivered and consumed, and the means of providing educational
opportunities
and content to modern students. Modern students are quite often very savvy in terms of using their portable
devices for a variety of
purposes, but can they access the educational content you create?
Understanding the range of portable devices that exist is the first challenge for aspiring authors of mobile media.
Recognizing the
capabilities and limitations of different types of devices and how they can interact with different media is a never
ending task.
CAPED 2011 Monday Full Program - 7 Connecting the DOTS
Constant innovation and development results in a moving target in terms of understanding just what is currently
possible from a
mobile media device.
Happily, the standards for media design can be based on simpler and more static criteria. By understanding the
best practices for
designing accessible media, you can also create media that will be easily presented on a variety of portable
devices. Regardless of
whether you are making simple electronic text, images, audio, video, or complex interactive media, there are
standards and
techniques that can help ensure a satisfactory end user experience.
In this session, participants will be given an overview of popular mobile media devices, and the best practices for
creating accessible
and usable electronic media. Special considerations for mobile media will be shared and discussed, and there will
be an opportunity
for hands-on experimentation. Issues such as “cloud-based” computing and data storage will be considered, and
academic
considerations for mobile technologies such as ebook readers, tablets, and smartphones will be covered.

CAPED 2011 Monday Full Program - 8 Connecting the DOTS
The Galvin Group, long known for their expertise in dealing with ADA and Section 504 compliance on campuses, is
hosting an online
module called Veterans Programs: Wounded Warriors. The module incorporates much of the work of Paul
Grossman and others
from the Office for Civil Rights, and is a free resource, available to all. Best practices and other resources, as well as
film clips and
general information are included in this module. We will information about the module and show how to access it.
The High Tech Center Training Unit (HTCTU) of the California community colleges is half way through a two-year
pilot project to
assist returning veterans in the reentry transition to the community colleges by creating Veterans Resource
Centers (VRC) on
campus. The VRC project provides a model for assisting wounded warriors to reintegrate into the classroom setting
with support in
three major areas: camaraderie, academics, and wellness. Training, collaboration, and referral are major focuses of
the project. A
unique aspect of the VRC vision is ensuring that veterans have access to and training on assistive technology to be
utilized in the
academic setting. We will provide information on the status of the project and how it is working at the fifteen CCC
pilot sites.
We will also consider the learning needs of this veteran population and how they may benefit from utilizing a
learning styles profile
and associated learning strategies. We will consider the role of assistive technology and why it might be wise to
make the AT
generally available in a VRC, rather than just in the college’s AT lab or high tech center.
Finally, we will share insights gleaned from campuses participating in the VRC Project and discuss phase two of the
project that is
currently underway.

Student Advocacy: THEN and NOW (double session from 1:45 – 4:30) (Grand Ballroom B)
Presenters:
Ralph Black
Catherine Campisi
Brenda Premo
Student Panel
Since the birth of the disability rights movement in the late 1960's early 1970's, students with disabilities have
played a key role in
establishing and shaping the programs which serve them in higher education and their communities. This session
will bring together
past and present student leaders to share their experiences, strategies and goals for advocacy. The Past and
Present presentations
will span over two sessions with a break in the middle for participants.

Active Minds: Students Supporting Mental Health Education (Regency Ballroom I)
Presenters:
Doug Fifueroa
Student Panel from UC Riverside, Riverside City College, College of the Desert and Palo Verde College
CAPED 2011 Monday Full Program - 9 Connecting the DOTS
This session will rely primarily upon students to discuss Active Minds, a national student organization, working to
utilize the
student voice to change the conversation about mental health on college campuses. By developing and supporting
chapters of a
student-run mental health awareness, education, and advocacy group on campuses, the organization works to
increase students’
awareness of mental health issues, provide information and resources regarding mental health and mental illness,
encourage
students to seek help as soon as it is needed, and serve as liaison between students and the mental health
community.
Through campus-wide events and national programs, Active Minds aims to remove the stigma that surrounds
mental health
issues, and create a comfortable environment for an open conversation about mental health issues on campuses
throughout
North America.
Beginning as a an organization limited to campuses on the Eastern Seaboard, Active Minds has now made serious
inroads into
other parts of the country, including the West Coast. This session will address the issues involved in establishing
chapters on four
specific campuses and the impact that those chapters have and hope to have on their respective campus
communities. Recently
a major national initiative has come to 2 of those campuses represented today. That campaign, Send Silence
Packing, involves a
display and educational program highlighting the reality of the 1,100 college students that die each year from
suicide by
displaying that number of backpacks and student stories on campuses across the country.

How to Create a Disability Advocates Training Program (Regency Ballroom II)
Create a Disability Advocates Training Program on a Shoestring!
Presenter:
Eric Peterson
The purpose of this workshop is to provide participants with everything they need to create and implement a
Disability Advocates
training program on their home campus.
Disability Advocates trainings are designed to increase disability awareness and sensitivity, teach disability
etiquette skills, deepen
consciousness through face-to-face conversations with students with disabilities, provide a resource list for
conducting effective
information and referral sessions, and increase support for people with disabilities through the widespread display
of Advocates
placards by willing program graduates. The Advocates program empowers participants to communicate and
interact openly and
respectfully with all people, particularly those with disabilities, and it opens up dialogue around ability / disability
as an aspect of
diversity that affects us all. On UC Riverside campus, the implementation of the Advocates program has arguably
improved the
climate for people with disabilities.
The relevance of this how-to workshop, then, is that it provides access to a powerful tool for creating a more
informed, welcoming,
and accepting environment around disability on college and university campuses.
This how-to workshop is suitable for participants of every skill level, as it assumes no prior knowledge of how to
create and
implement such a program. The target audience are members of a campus community with a stake in improving
campus climate
around diversity. The workshop may be judged a success if 100% of participants are able to create and implement
an Advocates
CAPED 2011 Monday Full Program - 10 Connecting the DOTS
program after the workshop. To that end, ongoing advice and support will be provided free of charge to all
participants who intend
to start such a program.

Rock Your Program Review: Tips to WorkAbility Success (Embassy Room)
Presenters:
Jenn McMahon, WorkAbility III Program Coordinator
Bree Kennedy, WorkAbility III Vocational Specialist
Michael Brown, WorkAbility III Graduate Intern
A program review by the State can be a very stressful and an intimidating process due to all of the unknowns.
SDCCD’s WorkAbility
III program would like to unveil the review process; turn this intimidating process into an informative, enjoyable,
and successful
experience. These techniques that we will share will be beneficial and applicable to DOR Staff, DSPS Counselors,
WorkAbility Staff,
and any other cooperative DOR programs. Based on SDCCD’s recent WorkAbility III review, we gained meaningful
insight into what is
expected of us in regards to state policies, rules, and regulations as well as positive feedback on the currently
practiced innovative
techniques used by our program. We would like to provide information on our current case note documentation
techniques,
effective referral process, communication strategies with DOR, creative employment preparation techniques, and
especially data
tracking. This interactive workshop will be open to questions, personal experiences and tips that you can take back
to your
Cooperative Program and implement right away! Especially in these economic times it is crucial to meeting your
annual goals but to
also go ABOVE & BEYOND!

CCCCO Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing Resource Guide Revision
CAPED 2011 Monday Full Program - 11 Connecting the DOTS
The California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO) published the first Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing resource
guide for the state
in 1993. Many significant changes have been made in how colleges provide accommodations to Deaf and hard-of-
hearing students.
There have been technical advancements as well. CCCCO recognized that it was time to update the revision to
include the updated
information. A task force was created consisting of individuals who serve DHH students in different roles.
The task force is now in the Year 1 of the two-year project. As part of the Year 1 plan, we are revising the guide.
During year 2, the
task force plans on creating ways to make the revised guide accessible in various formats to the colleges.
At the CAPED conference, in the spirit of collaboration and participation the task force hopes to share our progress
by identifying the
changes are making to the guide. Additionally, we hope to get input from relevant DSPS personnel on what
changes should be
incorporated in the new, updated guide. The guide will benefit not only the community colleges in California but
also colleges and
universities inside and outside of California because the guide will be made available online with diagrams and
videos.

Panel Moderator:
Diane Ramirez
“What does my VP/Dean need from me to advocate for services to disabled students on my campus?”
This panel of administrators from the various systems of higher education in CA will address the administrative
perspective on
services for disabled students. This session is intended to help directors/coordinators to think beyond the confines
of their offices
and to recognize the needs of their VP or Dean and the larger campus community.
The primary topics would be the following:
What issues do I face where I need support from my disable student services professional?
What data or information I need from you to adequately represent the needs of these students?
What legal issues do I need to be sensitized to and how will you do this for me?
What changes in the ADA have occurred and how will you keep me updated?
How do I provide for these services in tough fiscal times, like the present?

Transitional-Aged Youth: Mental Health Resources (Regency Ballroom I)
Presenters:
Riverside County Mental Health Department
Transitional Age Youth (TAY) is youth between the ages of 16-25 who are launching from adolescence into young
adulthood. This
distinct population is called upon to make complex decisions about their lives in regards to personal relationships,
employment,
health care, housing, education and finances. Young adults have extraordinary needs and are often faced with
challenges and
changes which they are often unprepared for. The intent of the Mental Health TAY system of care is to provide
resources and
strategies to assist this population in being able to successfully transition into the adult world.
One of the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) TAY initiatives was the development of TAY peer mentors that
utilize a peer to peer
approach in working with consumers of the mental health system. The role of the mentors is to assist TAY
consumers in building
independence, increasing self-awareness, providing support, locating resources and facilitating community
involvement. TAY
mentors also participate in the community planning process conduct outreach and represent the voices of TAY
consumers in system
meetings.
Come learn about the TAY programs that have been developed/coordinated by Riverside County Mental Health
Department and the
resources that are available in your particular county.

WorkAbility: Developing “Business Linkages” (Embassy Room)
Presenters:
Don O’Loghlin, Employment Specialist, College of the Desert
Veronica izurieta, Business Developer
Building Business Linkages for Workability Students in Higher Education
As part of an ARRA Grant we took an unusual approach. Instead of asking for funds to provide additional staff for
increased job
placement services, we focused on building the number of business contacts available for our Workability III
Students, both to
increase opportunities for internships and for employment. This process included holding six Business Forums on
campus during the
summer and fall as well as a Work Experience Job Fair for all students. Workability III students were included in
both the Forum
presentations and the Job Fair. This was followed by developing an employer database, a newsletter and
successful utilization of the
contacts developed in other job placement efforts.
The learning outcomes for this presentation include:
--Demonstrate how we and other Workability programs can successfully build business linkages.
--Demonstrate how this process can result in increased opportunities for our students.
--Demonstrate how we plan to go forward to maintain and use the employer database developed and the linkage
process in the
future for our students.
--Show how collaboration with other departments in the college has resulted in saved time, better use of
resources and more fluid
communication.

working together we can make the difference in veteran students’ success
by letting them know that they are NEVER alone.
The latest statistics from the California Department of Veterans Affairs,
CAPED 2011 Tuesday Full Program - 4 Connecting the DOTS
estimates that as military operations end in Iraq and Afghanistan, 30,000 Veterans will return to the state each
year. Imagine that
you are trying to return to your former life after just returning from tours in Afghanistan and Iraq. The unspeakable
atrocities of war
have left you feeling isolated; alone. You decide to go to college, but everything is different. While attending
school seems to be a
simple task, many find that it is more difficult than they expected. Veterans can become frustrated, angry,
depressed and worst of all
discouraged. These difficulties combined with a lack of knowledge pertaining to the benefits available to Veterans
make for a
difficult assimilation back into civilian life.
“You Are Never Alone: Veterans Serving Veterans” is an interactive power point presentation linked to the
Mobile Veterans Center
(MVC). This session is designed to inform the educational community about a unique outreach service for Veteran
students. There
are 50 MVC’s across the nation, 4 MVC’s are located in California. The 38-foot Mobile Centers have spaces for
confidential
counseling.

(Regency Ballroom II)
Presenter:
Gaeir Dietrich
The Federal Commission on Accessible Instructional Materials in Postsecondary Education was created in
September 2010 and
charged with the task of drafting a report to Congress within one year of its first meeting.
Specifically, the Commission was tasked with conducting a comprehensive study of the systemic barriers and asked
to identify
workable solutions to improving the timely delivery and quality of accessible instructional materials for
postsecondary students with
print disabilities. In making these assessments, the Commission was asked in particular to consider the following
factors:
--obtaining materials in a comparable timeframe and at comparable costs to their non-disabled peers;
--considering whether a standardized electronic file format would assist these goals;
--considering the feasibility of a national clearinghouse, repository, or file-sharing network;
--looking at possible market-based solutions;
--the role of universal design; and
--possible solutions for low-incidence, high-cost requests for aim
The former chair of the Commission will describe the work of the Commission, share insights into the
Commissioners thoughts
during their deliberations, and offer thoughts about next steps and the potential for future legislative action.

Concussion Management: DSP&S and Sports Medicine Collaborate (Regency Ballroom I)
Presenters:
Nancy Chinn
Monica Ohkubo
The purpose of this presentation is to offer a collaborative model for concussion management of college level
student-athletes that
draws upon the expertise and resources of both Sports Medicine and DSP&S programs.
Collegiate athletes who play contact sports face a greater risk of concussion each time they walk on the field or the
court (Copeland,
2010). The number of concussions sustained in college sports is significant; at Santa Rosa Junior College 30 student
athletes reported
concussions for the 2010/2011 academic year. The potentially life altering consequences of concussion are
becoming increasingly
crystallized in the literature, and impairments in cognition resulting from concussion can substantially interfere
with learning.
CAPED 2011 Tuesday Full Program - 9 Connecting the DOTS
Student-athletes who have sustained concussions can often benefit from academic accommodation, yet a recent
study of
concussion management in California Community Colleges (Chinn, 2010) indicates that systems for effectively
managing concussion,
both in the athletic training room and the classroom, are largely lacking. This presentation will help DSP&S
counselors understand
the role they can play in concussion management of their student- athletes at their colleges, and how this largely
untapped resource
can promote the overall health and academic success of college student-athletes who participate in contact sports.
Following participation in this workshop participants will:
--Understand the mechanism of concussion and the impact of symptoms on academics.
--Understand the student development considerations of the college level student-athlete presenting with a
concussion.
--Understand the role of DSP&S in collaborating with Sports Medicine and advancing a concussion management
program for their
college.
--Identify accommodations that can be of benefit to student-athletes following concussion.

problems, how
students can help teachers and how students can help students become more proficient in math and be more
successful with math
assignments.

Identifying Causes of Employment Disparities for Asian & Pacific Islanders (Embassy Room)
Presenters:
Peter Wong
June Kuehn
Doreen Wong
Becky Nguyen
Asian Pacific Islander (APIs) Americans generally enjoy higher employment rates and income levels than other
ethnic minorities.
However, when disability is considered, APIs with disabilities have a much lower employment rate of 27.4%,
compared to African
Americans with disabilities at 31.7% and Hispanics with disabilities at 38.2%. Overcoming this disparity is difficult
due to cultural
stigma and language barriers.

diverse ideas within
target textual material, as well as make connections to ideas outside the text, within the field of study, and among
a variety of
disciplines.
Graphic Organizer techniques will be introduced with a variety of methodologies including computer generated,
teacher driven, and
student produced. An explanation of how graphic organizers and mind mapping enhance the ability to remember
and apply
information will be presented. Opportunities to actually use the methods with various types of graphic organizers
will be offered in
an interactive way.

Surviving and Thriving in College on the Autism Spectrum (Grand Ballroom B)

This presentation intends to help promote practical understanding of how help people on the autism spectrum
transition to and
succeed in higher education. This population, especially in terms of those with official recognition, is increasingly
advancing to
various types of postsecondary education. The nature of the pervasive developmental disability presents a variety
of needs affecting
all areas of the college experience that institutions of higher learning often do not know how or have the resources
to meet.
Nevertheless, college offers these students unprecedented opportunities that incorporate the strengths many
possess, such as in
CAPED 2011 Tuesday Full Program - 12 Connecting the DOTS
intensely focusing on a particular subject or excelling in interest-based activities. This presentation is intended for
professionals,
family members, and self-advocates, who will learn about formal accommodations and services as well as informal
self-help or
coping strategies. It is intended for all audiences, and will draw on the academic and personal knowledge and
experiences of the

traditional methods and connect resources to build teams beyond Disability Services to extend the mission of
advocacy, support and
awareness.
CAPED 2011 Tuesday Full Program - 13 Connecting the DOTS
The purpose of this presentation is to share strategies aimed at developing cross-functional teams that foster
disability awareness
and advocacy across college campuses. Encouraging the idea that a disability should not be seen as a limitation but
rather signs of
perseverance, strength and determination in accomplishing all life endeavors. At Cal Poly Pomona the Access and
disABILITY Alliance
(AdA) was formed in 2007 to create a group of staff, students and faculty engaged in supporting disability
awareness and advocacy.
The mission of AdA is to increase awareness of, and to promote access and equity for, individuals with disabilities
throughout the Cal
Poly Pomona campus community.
This presentation is intended for faculty, staff and students at post-secondary institutions, disability-related
professionals and
community partners who wish to support disability awareness efforts, and advocacy at the college level. This
presentation is geared
towards all skills levels of individuals throughout these areas.
An overview of Cal Poly Pomona’s Access and disABILITY Alliance will be provided and strategies for formation,
funding, and
programming and evaluation practices to create an independent collaboration will be discussed. Panelists will
include core
leadership from the AdA who serve in various roles outside of Disability Services, as well as, a current student
representative. The
panel discussion will be enriched with the use of multimedia, PowerPoint presentation and various work samples
to better equip
participants to develop their own alliance that capitalizes on cross-functional teams and resources. Together with a
question and
answer session participants will recognize new opportunities for creating support and advocacy outside of
Disability Services; how to
leverage campus and community collaborative efforts to fund, conceptualize, and implement innovative
programming; and engage
the community at large (both individuals with disabilities and those without) in disability awareness activities.
