Smith, gave a presentation at this year’s Pennsylvania Association of Developmental Educators (PADE) conference held near Hershey, Pennsylvania.

She examined how institutions and churches have been impacted by cultural norms, theology and the law in dealing with disabilities and diversity problems.

Smith concluded her presentation with ways in which postsecondary institutions can develop a welcoming and inclusive environment for students with disabilities that will promote academic success.
