The RISE Act was reintroduced in Congress but we need more members of Congress to support it and make it law. The RISE Act will help students with learning and attention issues transition to college and succeed once there by:
- Requiring colleges accept a student's IEP, 504 plan or a prior evaluation as sufficient proof of their disability when seeking accommodations.
- Making information about disability services in college more accessible for families and students.
- Supporting a technical assistance center for college faculty to learn more about the needs of students with disabilities.
Use the form below to tell your Members of Congress to support the RISE Act. You'll be able to customize your message on the next page.
