VOICES of the ADA Student Video Project at UB:
Helping UB students understand the experience of their peers with disabilities was the goal of one exciting project from UB Accessibility Resources. Inspired by the national Voices of the ADA project created by Stacey Milburn (president of the National Youth Leadership Network , www.nyln.org ) and Ari Ne'eman, from the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (http://www.autisticadvocacy.org), UB's Voices of the ADA Generation project began as a student exercise in a UB class on participation, universal design and disability.

Coordinated by UB graduate student Angelica Soto, under the supervision of UB's Accessibility Resources' Amy Wlosinski and Susan Mann Dolce, PhD, the video follows five UB students who wrote essays about being students of the ADA generation. The students are asked about their experiences at UB and what inspired their essays. Assisting in the project were Visual Arts student Brielle Greenberg, Martha Greatrix from UB's Teaching and Learning Center, and Social Sciences Interdisciplinary student Caroline Skonecki.

UB's "Voices" video was presented at the 2011 Association for Higher Ed and Disability Conference in Seattle, Wash., and at the New York State Disability Services Council 2011 Annual Meeting.

The video continues to be used as an educational tool in UB Student Affairs and the Teaching and Learning Center.
