Education Desk: First Class of Students with Intellectual Disabilities will Graduate from University of Central Florida
Students at the University of Central Florida are graduating this week.
And for the first time-thirteen students with intellectual disabilities will join them.
Our first class of Inclusive Education Services students will be recognized at commencement this Friday afternoon with the @UCFCCIE.
They’re part of the inaugural class of a program through UCF Inclusive Education Services.
In the meantime, we’ll just be here reminiscing on this fun time we had with them 😭 pic.twitter.com/dqXHFvNC9O

Like any other undergraduate-they’ve taken college classes, completed internships, and lived on campus.
The Education Desk met with one of those students-Elyse Mundelein and her mom Tina-as she gets ready to put on her cap and gown.
