Hello CAPED Membership!

As your Editor-in-Chief, I am excited to share the spring & fall 2018 editions of the Communique’.

In these editions, we have wonderful articles such, legislation road maps, information from faculty and teaching students with disabilities, information from DSPS Solutions, sexual violence and DSPS office collaborations, service animals in the workplace and much more! The Communique would not be possible without the work of our brilliant managing editors, Leo Orange and Adrian Gonzalez. Also, our Editors have been working diligently with getting this fabulous edition to you. Please continue to reach out to departments and people that are doing great things to continue sharing this wealth of information and best practices to the rest of our colleagues in California. These are all great things to incorporate and share with your college campuses.

I also take this opportunity to welcome CAPED Communique 2019 Editor-in-Chief, Sofia Gianoutsos! She may be reached at You may submit Articles for the Spring 2019 edition by navigating to Submissions for Spring 2019.

I look forward to our continued success!
