August 27, 2003 (Lexington, Ky.) -- The Interdisciplinary Human Development Institute (IHDI) at the University of Kentucky will conduct a seminar lecture series on Fridays from September to November focusing on lifespan issues for individuals with disabilities and their families.

The seminars will look at early childhood (birth through age 3), preschool and elementary education transition, school age inclusion, transition from high school, supported living, and aging and disabilities.

“We will be looking at different transition times that individuals with disabilities and their families face,” said Stephanie Adams, seminar coordinator. “These seminars are a wonderful related-learning experience for anyone interesting in the human sciences.”

“This semester, we are very fortunate to have experts in our field, discussing various issues related to persons with disabilities,” Harold Kleinert, director of IHDI, said. “I am excited at the prospect of students, faculty and staff of the university and the UK Chandler Medical Center, in addition to members of the community, having access to this information.”

All the seminars are free and open to the community and will be held at the Interdisciplinary Human Development Institute at UK. For more information about the seminars, call (859) 257-3360 or go to www.ihdi.uky.edu/.
